Abstract

Mobile learning is fast establishing itself in higher education as an engaging and successful learning and teaching strategy. This webinar will explore the dynamic relationships between learning design, content, audience and platforms and the critical challenges that need to be resolved for effective mobile learning in higher education. The webinar will examine the impact of mobile learning on higher education and will further describe mobile learning at Charles Sturt University – a university providing intimate on-campus education on its distributed campuses but who is also the largest provider of distance education in Australia.
