E-learning has often been described as learning anytime, anywhere, anyplace but that is, in most people's imagination, using a laptop or a PC which is not in their office. But mobile phones are now ubiquitous with a high proportion of the population owning and using one regularly. Personal digital assistants are now becoming capable of doing what a lot of PC's can do but suggest to many, that you should actually do learning on one and invariably you are met with furrowed brows and enquiries as to whether you are being serious about it.
Just like e-learning, mobile learning has its limitations but it also provides a host of new possibilities to deliver learning when you need it, literally wherever you are. This conference will explore just where we are in delivering learning using mobile devices. It will de-mystify the term and lay out the whole new range of possibilities that are becoming available. You will hear from practitioners researchers and those that have been there and done it with the results that they have achieved.
