The increased usage of mobile devices for learning purposes raises several concerns regarding how this adaptation affects learning and perceived quality of educational content across different screen resolutions. This research looks into how educational content type and video adaptation affect the perceived quality of multimedia educational content on two different mobile devices. We consider seven different categories of educational content: slideshow, screencast, presentation, lab demo, interview, documentary, and animation. The results show that the participants could learn regardless of the video content type and the adapted version of the video. We found no statistical significant difference between the perceived quality of the highest quality video and the lower quality video for two of the categories (lab demo and interview) and statistical significant difference on the remaining ones. The implications of this study are also discussed.
