Abstract

Continuous advancement of mobile devices and wireless communication technologies can be successfully utilized to complement face-to-face and blended learning methods. In the recent years various educational software systems have accumulated a wealth of learning resources. Proliferation of mobile devices offers new ways for content delivery. The aim of the project described in this paper was to avoid re-development of the existing online teaching resources and investigate their effectiveness in mobile learning. We have surveyed students’ expectations in terms of educational methods and materials students preferred to use ubiquitously in synergy with face-to-face or blended learning. The study provided an impetus towards the development of a J2ME platform conveying existing electronic teaching resources from the LMS to mobile devices. The analysis of students learning effectiveness via mobile devices has shown the benefits of enriching student experience by means of new technology. This paper concludes with a reflection on the user experience and guidelines for conveying and adaptation of the existing online learning materials for wireless delivery.
