Excellence in Teaching and Learning in Reusable Learning Objects
MetadataShow full item record
Our ongoing work at London Metropolitan University investigates effective ways to design learning environments that add mobile learning into blended higher education modules. Our approach is one of evolutionary, iterative refinement of the learning environment based on student feedback. Blended learning effectiveness can be viewed as a function of effective pedagogical practices. Accordingly, a key question is: What combination of instructional strategies and delivery media will best produce the desired learning outcome for the intended audience? The paper will (i) outline the background issues that led to the development of the blended mLearning approach (ii) describe the initial survey that informed our design, (iii) outline the blended mLearning design, (iv) present our evaluation findings with students, and (v) conclude by commenting on the wider applicability of our approach.
