Delivery of content on mobile phones is old news.
Every app on every smartphone, is a system designed to deliver valuable content in one form or the other. What distinguishes a true mobile learning system from an app that actually delivers learning material is its ability to ensure education is actually taking place.
An example of the future
Assume you have a verbal French app on your phone. Whenever you open the app you learn a new phrase. You may even be able to revise the previous phrases you’ve learned. Even better, the app may enable you to take multiple choice tests, giving you an idea of what you have learned.
But what if your app could also monitor the fact that you haven’t been logging into your app everyday? What if it could compare the results of your test with your previous test records and show you how your scores have dropped? What if the app provided you with a feature to call-in for verbal test?
Pushing learning levels up
The future of mobile learning lies beyond delivery of learning material on to your phone in a form that can be easily consumes. The future lies in its ability to influence the rate of learning, and improve educational levels.
A successful mobile learning app will need to incorporate ‘learning measurement’ or tools that can grade levels of education. To foster self-learning, it needs to provide the learner with objective measurement for learning improvement. To work in association with an educational environment, it has to provide educators with the ability to monitor and measure whether learning is taking place and how effective it is for students at different levels.
Mobl21 is a mobile learning app that enables both learners and educators to track and analyze learning levels, through a unique CREATE, SHARE, CONNECT & MEASURE® system. For more information, write to us.
