Description & Coverage
Description:

This volume draws together all the articles published by the International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning in its first year of publication (2009).

When compared with traditional classroom learning, mobile learning (m-learning) has the distinct advantage of making content accessible and available to a number of people in a wide range of different places.

Combining E-Learning and M-Learning: New Applications of Blended Educational Resources reviews new systems and frameworks for the application of mobile technologies in educational contexts. Contributions provide insight on ethical and cross-cultural considerations of mobile learning, as well as different teaching and learning styles.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Affective Tutoring Systems
  • Awareness in ubiquitous learning
  • Developing mobile learning systems
  • E-professional development
  • Ethical considerations for mobile learning
  • Evaluating mobile learning
  • Innovation in Mobile Learning
  • Managing learning schedules
  • Mobile Web 2.0
  • Pervasive learning systems
  • Web-enabled self-regulated learning
Reviews & Statements

"Readers seeking ideas for practical application of these theories will find
inspiration throughout, but particularly in chapters more focused on usage."

– Judi L. Davidson Wolf, University of Maryland, Baltimore County. American Journal of Distance Education

The contributors are leading researchers in the field, and many of the papers included in this volume are revised and extended versions of the best work from the major international mobile learning conference series, mLearn and IADIS Mobile Learning. [...] "They are experts in the fields of computer science, electronics, information systems, technology in education, software engineering, communication and pedagogy."

– Professor Linda Cleote, INFOBUZZ, South Africa. Online Information Review, Vol. 36, No. 2, 2012.
