dc.descriptionThis paper was presented as a short paper at the conference, on Wednesday, March 26th. There were several questions posed after the presentation. One person wondered if the small number of responders represented only a small group of people who would be using mobile devices anyway. Another person was interested in the IMD LD methodology used. A third person stated he would be interested in further research of this type that broke the responders down into demographics such as age and rural/urban locations. Attendees from the Ulyanovsk State Technical University in Russia expressed an interest in future collaboration based on the mobile technology in the presentation. Finally, two attendees from Massey University in New Zealand asked me submit a paper to present further results from the research at the DEANZ Conference in New Zealand Aug/08 and invited me to present to staff at Massey University in the same visit as well.en
dc.description.abstractM-Learning research at the School of Computing and Information Systems (SCIS) at Athabasca University has been directed at improving mobile device access to distance learning materials through improved device detection, use of mobile device style sheets, and alternate files and graphics that are tailored to smaller screens. However, there is a greater significance placed in determining how learners perceive these enhancements to online learning. During this study, students were directed to access their regular online course materials using their mobile devices, then asked to complete a survey regarding their perception of this experience. This paper discusses the results from this study.en
