With our focus on mobile learning, we’re constantly attempting to address the multifarious platforms in the mobile technology space.
These days, phones are sophisticated, and some come with operating systems that allow for installation and removal of applications on the device. While this is a common and accepted paradigm on computers, its still relatively novel for mobile devices. Mobile devices in the past came with fixed features that couldn’t be altered, and a user had to make do with the functionality that shipped with the device. In the future, all phones will have sophisticated operating systems, sensors, and connectivity; developing applications for those will be different from typical eLearning as is seen on desktop computers.
We’ve been developing applications for the iPhone and Blackberry; and we’ve just started Android development too. Exciting times for us, to share some of what we’ve been doing, we’ve uploaded one of our test applications to the App Store – The Soccer Quiz. While this is rudimentary quiz application, we’re working on other applications that will function as learning tools.
