Abstract

Educational organisations hold lots of valuable information and material in different forms that needs to be communicated to people with different profiles anytime, anywhere. Mobile phones offer great opportunities of accessing such information and services by using hardware owned by Educational Organizations’ members. This paper studies the requirements for such mobile learning (m-learning) tools for information and services provision to support learning and teaching and enhance student experience and satisfaction. To demonstrate this it uses the WMIN-MOBILE project as a case study. The WMIN-MOBILE is a prototype that provides general information about the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Westminster (UoW) and services like announcements, timetable and lab facilities and availability. The paper justifies the educational value of such m-learning tools and reports requirements for developing such tools. It further describes the WMIN-MOBILE system design and architecture and concludes with lessons learned and further work.
