Open Mobile: institutional responses to mobile learner support

Thomas, Rhodri (2010). Open Mobile: institutional responses to mobile learner support. In: mLearn2010 Conference, 19-22 Oct 2010, Malta.


This poster will outline some of the steps that The Open University is taking in providing a range of learning services and materials to an increasingly mobile-aware student body. In particular, providing a mobile VLE or LMS through customised Moodle templates and modules will be illustrated, alongside more subject-specific content packages and applications. Further enhancements and interventions are listed, where the university is adopting strategic cross-institutional solutions to work with our mobile learners in addition to subject-specific trials and pilots.
