Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the on-going development of a mobile system which disseminates course and module information to university students to optimize their learning experience. The design is that of a ‘mobile widget’, allowing
the students to subscribe to modules which they wish to receive information about, directly to their mobile phone. The platform chosen is that of Nokia’s Web RunTime, which promises to provide portability and immediacy to user required information. The promise in RSS feeds has been well documented and realized in E-Learning scenarios; yet the potential is just as great for M-Learning. This paper reflects upon the potential, the challenges and the position of the project itself.
