CIDER session on mobile learning, Oct. 6

We would like to invite you to the next presentation of our fall series of free online CIDER sessions. This session features a presentation and discussion with Marguerite Koole, Athabasca University, and Inge de Waard, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Belgium.

Title: Mobile Learning: Solutions and Challenges

In this session, Marguerite Koole and Inge de Waard will describe two mobile learning projects:

1. A project piloting a Java-based system called “MobiGlam”. Through MobiGlam, students accessed Moodle course modules on their mobile devices. Evaluations from this 2008 project highlighted some interesting challenges in the Canadian context.

2. A mobile learning project of the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium and the Institute of Tropical Medicine Alexander von Humboldt, Lima, Peru. Twenty physicians, deployed in urban peripheral HIV/AIDS clinics in Peru, used Smartphones with portable solar chargers to access 3D simulations of interactive clinical cases, discussion forums, and quizzes.
