A number of snapshots and case studies highlight institutions and projects that have been involved in mobile learning initiatives. The snapshots explore the background, experiences and lessons learned from implementing and embedding mobile learning.
The University of Leeds focused on a number of mobile learning initiatives, with perhaps the best known being their deployment of Apple iPhones to medical students. The University of Bradford share their experiences of mobiles apps and websites. Jisc have been involved with a number of projects, including the SCARLET project which involves augmented reality, and Mobile Mimas which provides researchers a mobile-friendly way of accessing a wealth of information and articles.
An international perspective is demonstrated by Spain’s School of Industrial Organisation, who have been experimenting with mobile learning since 2009, specifically looking to provide richer learning process for the students and teachers through more personalised content and greater interactivity from mobile devices.
A range of case studies to draw on different experiences relating to mobile learning includes collections from ESCalate, the Excellence Gateway and MoLeNET.
