Combining E-Learning and M-Learning

Book 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.
