Abstract

With the recent developments in mobile and web technologies and mass adoption of mobile devices by the current school generation, significant opportunities have emerged for e-learning applications. This article makes a contribution to the design aspects of media-enhanced e-learning application. We present a design and development process for mobile application that seamlessly combines user-created multimedia with the student’s learning process in a school environment. We present the evolution of the application from a simple mobile phone application to a rich tablet application. We also report on field trial results with real users, showing that the application is quite easy to learn and use even for inexperienced users, and present insights from user comments on using mobile devices and user-created multimedia to aid the learning process.
