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.

Social Networking Software

 

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

 

The Social Networking Software review below provides a typography of the social software landscape and catagorises the different software types, their current usage and demographic information.

The next report is a logical progression of the first two and it is a directory of research projects around the world engaging in the study of social software.

In order to help tutors and learners make use of social networking software in an educational context, guides are being produced for the use of key applications. The first two are guides to social bookmarking:

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:
