Mobile Learning: Transforming the Delivery of Education and Training

"...if you don't have time to read the whole book, be sure to see John Traxler's Current State of Mobile Learning (PDF), which outlines major categories of mobile learning, discussion of a definition of mobile learning, the case for mobile learning, and attributes of an evaluation of mobile learning." - Stephen Downes

Please read this free e-book (including myself! Only 281 pages! No big deal!):

"This collection is for anyone interested in the
use of mobile technology for various distance learning applications. Readers will discover how to design learning materials for delivery on mobile technology and become familiar with the best practices of other educators, trainers, and researchers in the field, as well as the most recent initiatives in mobile learning research. Businesses and governments can learn how to deliver timely information to staff using mobile devices. Professors can use this book as a textbook for courses on distance education, mobile learning, and educational technology."

Today, I actually spend more time learning and surfing the net using my mobile device (or hand-phone) than my notebook (Don't use PC anymore!), when I am not officially working. What are you trying to say?

Let's just download the e-book, and then read, reflect, and figure out how we are going to implement Mobile learning (wherever we are!) to facilitate a more enriching and effective online learning environment.

Whether we like it or not, most students will be using their mobile devices to surf and learn in the near future, and surely they will ask...

Why can't I access my _____ on my mobile device!
They're so backward and lost!

Time to change? I mean wake-up :)
