    Abstract

    The recent development in mobile and web technologies has led to a growing amount of personal digital content. This technological advancement opens up possibilities for special application domains, such as e-learning. In this paper we present MEL, a web application that seamlessly combines user-created multimedia with the student's learning process in a school environment. With MEL, the teacher can easily create assignments for students who can then execute these assignments with mobile phones, capturing multimedia content, such as videos or pictures. We report on field trial results with real users showing that MEL 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.
