Learning Messages Notification System to Mobile Devices
Jimenez, M. Lourdes
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v2 n9 p68-71 Sep 2005
The work presents a new method to send educational messages in e-learning systems. The communication tools are one of the main characteristics of the virtual formative actions, in addition of the contents and the evaluation. The system must help to motivate the students, mainly those who do not leave the formative action and continue it until the end. The system will be an extension of the communication tools, which are incorporated in all LMS (Learning Management Systems). The main idea is to spread to everybody (students or professors) implied in a course, any change or new situation. For example, a change in the contents of the course, publication of the examination dates, new schedules of tutorials, the qualification of an examination, proposal of new exercises, etc. It is, any event related to the virtual course that can be notified with a message. The students will receive the educative messages in their mobile devices: phone or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant). The messages will be of SMS (Short Message Service) type. (Contains 2 figures.)
