The 2012 Mobile Learning Day will allow experts from Canada, England, Switzerland and Germany to discuss about the implementation of Mobile Learning in different areas. Three workshops will also allow participants to exchange experiences and make contacts. This will take place on November 8th in Hagen.
In the last years, E-learning has confirmed itself as a real and complementary learning form. The so-called Blended-learning concept takes advantage of the place and time flexibility of e-learning and the individuality of coaching and face to face training. The rapid diffusion of mobile devices (cell phones, smart phones, tablets, etc.) makes it necessary to rethink the so-called mobile learning but creates also new challenges:
- the displays are smaller
- the learning units must be smaller because Mobile Learning is used mostly in short periods (for example waiting times)
The Mobile Learning joint research project involves big corporations, small and medium businesses, a university and a german public institution.
Mobile Learning Day
On November, 8th 2012, 9a.m. – 5.30p.m.,
at FernUniversität in Hagen in Ellipse Room.

ReStore is a repository of online research methods resources which preserves, sustains and actively maintains web resources developed as part of UK's Economic and Social Research Council funding focused on research methods in the social sciences. These online resources do not only provide a valuable personal development resource for researchers unable to participate in face-to-face training, but also provide an important repository of social science knowledge.

OULDI-JISC Project Evaluation Report: the impact of new curriulum design tools and approaches on institutional process and design cultures
This report presents research and evaluation undertaken by the OULDI-JISC Project (Open University Learning Design Initiative JISC Project) between 2008 and 2012. In particular, it considers the impact of new curriculum design tools and approaches piloted by the project on institutional processes and design cultures. These tools and approaches include tools for sharing learning design expertise (Cloudworks), visualising designs (CompendiumLD, Module Map, Activity Profile) and for supporting design and reflection in workshops (Facilitation Cards, workshop activities, etc.). The project has adopted a learning design approach so as to help foreground pedagogy and learner experience. Nine pilots have been completed across six UK universities.
Une analyse sur les expériences d'utilisation de Twitter en milieu scolaire qui s'appuie sur les démarches pionnières et sur une enquête en ligne menée auprès des professionnels acteurs ou observateurs de ces pratiques. Les résultats du questionnaire permettent de relever les apports éducatifs de l'outil et de faire ressortir les principales activités réalisées avec les élèves.
POERUP is carrying out research to understand how governments can stimulate the uptake of OER by policy means. We aim to convince decision-makers that in order to be successful with OER, they will have to formulate evidence-based policies based on looking beyond one’s own country, region or continent, beyond the educational sector they look after.
POERUP aims to study the end-user–producer communities behind OER initiatives. By comparing in-depth European case-studies to selected non-European ones we will refine and elaborate recommendations to formulate a set of action points that can be applied to ensuring the realisation of successful, lively and sustainable OER communities.
We want to provide education authorities, the research community and OER initiative management with trustworthy and balanced research results, in which feedback from all stakeholder groups has been incorporated and which can be used as standard literature. A specific objective is to help readers in charge of OER initiatives to find ways of incorporating successful features of other initiatives.
