Deployment of Mobile Learning Course Materials to Android Powered Mobile Devices
Chao, Lee
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v10 n3 p1-16 Jul-Sep 2012
The objective of this article is to facilitate mobile teaching and learning by providing an alternative course material deployment method. This article suggests a course material deployment platform for small universities or individual instructors. Different from traditional course material deployment methods, the method discussed deploys course materials by using services provided by Android Market. After comparing the traditional course material deployment and the alternative deployment, the author presents strategies to take advantage of Android Market in delivering course materials to mobile devices. Through a case study, this article illustrates the application of these strategies in deploying a class menu for an object-oriented programming course in the computer science curriculum. (Contains 1 table and 10 figures.)
