Requirements for a Seamless Collaborative and Cooperative MLearning System

Sammendrag

There is need for mobile learning (mLearning) systems that are capable of spurring seamless collaborative and cooperative learning. Such systems would be instrumental in redefining the way academic and administrative student support services are extended to students who might find themselves situated in different learning spaces and with multiple societal roles. In this chapter, the Mobile Learning Object Deployment and Utilisation Framework (MoLODUF) was used to underpin a study from which requirements necessary for the development of a seamless collaborative and cooperative mLearning system were instantiated. The adduced requirements include the need for communication cost subsidies and putting in place mechanisms for harnessing positive mLearning policy elements. Other requirements relate to human, financial and infrastructural resources for spurring mLearning. The system also requires an authentication protocol to prevent unauthorised use and unsolicited communication. It also requires GSM and GPRS mobile network connectivity so as to embrace low- and high-end mobile phones and mobile and PC interoperability. The system needs to be designed for learners who are located in multiple contexts and with multiple roles. Text and audio media types are ideal for learning objects that are seamlessly interoperable on low- to high-end mobile phones and PCs. The system as well should be cognisant of the need for learning comfort and learning object delivery feedback. These system requirements have been used to develop a prototype seamless collaborative and cooperative mLearning systems using SMS technology.
