Building the Momentum for M-Learning Via the ECU Advantage Project
MetadataShow full item record
Edith Cowan University (ECU) has been exploring the implications of m-learning through the ECU Advantage project. In the pilot phase of this project selected class groups were provided with a personal laptop computer on loan for the duration of a semester. The intention of the project was to improve student learning outcomes by using mobile computing to enhance collaboration, flexibility and information access. This paper reports on the issues encountered and solutions developed throughout the pilot project including a number of pedagogical experiences and perspectives which may shape future m-learning teaching and learning initiatives at ECU. In addition, a number of infrastructure issues have been addressed and their implications for change are recorded. Finally, the paper identifies institutional outcomes, mostly of a continuing nature, that are being addressed following the pilot project.
