Design of a Microlecture Mobile Learning System Based on Smartphone and Web Platforms
Wen, Chuanxue; Zhang, Junfei
IEEE Transactions on Education, v58 n3 p203-207 Aug 2015
This paper first analyzes the concept and features of microlecture, mobile learning, and ubiquitous learning, then presents the combination of microlecture and mobile learning, to propose a novel way of micro-learning through mobile terminals. Details are presented of a microlecture mobile learning system (MMLS) that can support multiplatforms, including PC terminals and smartphones. The system combines intelligent push, speech recognition, video annotation, Lucene full-text search, clustering analysis, Android development, and other technologies. The platform allows learners to access microlecture videos and other high-quality microlecture resources wherever and whenever they like, in whatever time intervals they have available. Teachers can obtain statistical analysis results of the microlecture in MMLS to provide teaching/learning feedback and an effective communication platform. MMLS promotes the development of microlecture and mobile learning. A statistical analysis of the implementation of the system shows that students using MMLS to assist their learning had improved results on their final exams and gave a higher evaluation of the curriculum than those who did not. The advantages and disadvantages of MMLS are also analyzed.
