Mobile Web 2.0, Microlearning, Intertwingularity, and Mobile Widgets
Jaokar, Ajit
Educational Technology, v47 n6 p43-45 Nov-Dec 2007
Four facets of the unfolding mobile open ecology in which OER will move are described. Web 2.0 is a platform harnessing collective intelligence where participation and pushing content are stimulated. Microlearning is different from e-learning, which replicated the classroom online; microlearning deals with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities. The fragmented Web may bring the fulfilment of the intertwingularity vision. Mobile widgets are suited to microlearning and are part of a holistic trend. (Contains 5 footnotes and 7 online resources.)
