Mobile Learning Application Based on RSS Feed Technology
Mohanna, Mahmoud; Capus, Laurence
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Mobile Learning (Lisbon, Portugal, Mar 14-16, 2013)
This paper presents a mobile learning application for a learning course at higher education level. Based on the RSS feed technology, the presented mobile application establishes an in-time communication channel between the instructor and his/her students to keep them up-to-date with all course important dates, instructions and information in addition to a download center to provide them a permanent and fast access to all course lectures and resources. Security issues are also taken into consideration, only students who are currently enrolled in the learning course are allowed to access the mobile application through a security control which is simple and adequate in the same time. The presented mobile learning application is currently available to be downloaded and installed through Google Play store (formerly called Android Market) on almost all Android devices starting from Android 2.1 and higher. Future work includes further enrichment of the application by adding additional modules and functionalities as well as increasing the application availability by developing other versions for Windows 8 and iOS smartphones and tablets in order reach a wider range of students.
