The MobilED project is one of the most inspiring and interesting of all of the mobile learning projects currently in use around the world. It’s a partnership between South African and Finnish research and educational organisations, aiming to design “learning environments that are meaningfully enhanced with mobile technologies and services“.
The MobileED team’s latest papers and publications are now available here, addressing issues such as the use of “audio wikis” as well as information on the technical infrastructure being researched and developed by the team to support mobile learning (the MobilED platform).
There’s a wealth of documented and demonstrated experience to help other educators and developers who are involved with implementing mobile learning approaches. The video case studies on the website are also worth viewing, explaining some of their projects such as the audio encyclopaedia (allowing text-to-speech information from Wikipedia to be accessed using a normal mobile phone), and providing some insight into the actual use of the MobilED kits.
