    Abstract

    The recent development in mobile and web technologies have led to growing amount of personal digital content. This technological advancement opens up possibilities to special application domains, such as e-learning. In this paper we present MEL, a web application, which seamlessly combines user created multimedia with student's learning process in school environment. With MEL, the teacher can easily create assignments for students, who then can execute these assignments with mobile phones capturing multimedia content, such as videos or pictures. Once the assignment is executed the students can view, edit and share the content with other students and the teacher can utilize and review the results together with students. We report on field trial results with real users showing that MEL is rather easy to learn and use, even with inexperienced users, and present insights from user comments on utilizing mobile devices and user created multimedia for aiding the learning process
