WALES Project Plan V4


Mobile Technology


The WALES project is exploring the use of mobile technologies by tutors and learners engaged in on-line learning. A JAVA based application for mobile devices has been developed at the University of Glamorgan that communicates with the Moodle VLE. The MobiGlam User Guide document summarises the functionality of the application that is downloaded to the mobile devices of both Learners and Tutors that enables them to communicate with Moodle and use the services provided.

The WALES project is also exploring the role that social networking software might play in the on-line tutor/learner support system.

The Project has developed a Ning site that might form the basis of both the SNS support in this project and the Learning Environment in the eTutor project. The site is being used as part of the on-going SNS research where an active Blog is being maintained:
