Instructional Design for Mobile Learning – Webinar and Slides from David Metcalf

Mobile Strategy, Pedagogy and Learning Comments (2)

Dr. David Metcalf, one of the pioneers of mobile learning, and director of the METIL Lab at the University of Central Florida, recently presented a webinar on instructional design for mobile learning. Both David’s extensive deck of slides and a recording of the webinar are available for downloading. (The video embedded here requires Flash – sorry mobile users!) The deck is available here.

The acronym METIL stands for Mixed Emerging Technology Integration Lab, and signals the next move in mobile learning technologies – from mobile phones to a wide variety of devices with multiple form factors, operating systems and development platforms that all work together. What is emerging is a mix whereby each device knows where the learner has left off previously, and seamlessly reconfigures the content for each new device, while maintaining the continuity in the presentation of content.

Part of this new technology is the responsive Web design technologies that Chad Udell wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Beyond that are new approaches to tracking in the cloud that maintains a record of the learner’s progress as he or she moves from one device to another.
