MetadataShow full item record
With the rapid evolution of technology today, distance education is about to shift to Mobile learning where e-learning materials are being delivered through mobile devices. Wireless and mobile technology provides flexibility in time and location of study. Athabasca University (AU) has initiated a mobile-friendly digital library (M-library) project to support Mobile learning. The M-library system can auto-detect users’ devices and bring them to the mobile or desktop version of the website. This presentation demonstrates the design, implementation, and evaluation of the M-library system. This project was the recipient of the 2006 Canadian Library Association Library Research and Development Grant for its innovative approach to connecting users and libraries.
