This paper describes the M-E adaptive architecture designed to blend mobile and e-learning in a single integrated computer-based infrastructure. A prototype application has been developed that consists of three main components namely the web-based interface, the mobile access interface, and the adaptation mechanism that is used to provide just-in-time tailored content according to students’ individual preferences. The prototype application is currently restricted to the design of multiple-choice questions that can be answered by students either using a web-interface or by downloading on their mobile phones. Their progress is then synchronised with the main web database for pedagogical followup by their respective teachers. The blending of the pedagogical approach to support mobile learners adds more flexibility to the learning process. However, it is clear that m-learning would not be suitable for reading large files but rather it should be used to support carefully chosen and well-fitted pedagogical scenarios that will potentially improve the teaching and learning process.
|Additional Information:||We acknowledge the excellent work carried out by our three students (Kurmally, Jhumka and Sullimun Jeajee) in the implementation of the prototype applications as part of their final year project. We thank all support staff from the Faculty of Engineering and VCILT for their technical assistance to the students.|
