The aim of the project is to develop mobile learning course content and services that will enter into the mainstream and take mobile learning from a project-based structure and into mainstream education and training.
As relayed by innovation experts, new ideas and inventions only become innovations when the ideas or inventions are adopted and utilised by the market. For mobile learning to enter into the mainstream the following are necessary:
- Guides for the development of mobile learning need to be produced for mainstream institutions
- Mobile messaging needs to be established as a standard administrative structure in education and training institutions; short courses, course summaries, examination preparation, needs to be developed for PDAs, smartphones and mobile phones
- Full modules need to be developed for PDAs and smartphones; these modules need to be offered to fee-paying students, as part of the institution’s offering, with full evaluation and with normal awards and accreditation.
