The mobile learning movement is beginning to gain momentum. Teaching in schools, universities, colleges (and even learning from home) has the potential to be more engaging with the integration of m-learning. And as a result, mobile learning is becoming exceedingly popular. It was reported by Ambiant insight that the US market for mobile learning products had generated a staggering $958.7 million in 2010. Not only this, but they predicted the compound annual growth rate to be 13.7% over the next five years, proving that mobile learning will continue to develop as more and more people begin to recognise its advantages.
Dan Comins, instructional designer at ATS, attended an Educause webinar on “Managing the Online Learning Environment” two weeks ago. Part II and III, which talk about fostering student engagement and motivation in online classes as well as dealing with different online student personality types are well worth watching or passing on to faculty who are interested in online education.
