Time is one thing in the world that we cannot change. Information, communications, family, friends, and work overload our time. We fill our day with activities that overwhelm our capacity to handle them. We need extreme time management methods to cope with stress, unproductivity, and procrastination. Is not about multi-tasking, it is about packed-tasking.
MIT marketed as iMobileU, is proving successful and some think it might even become a rival for Blackboard, the current leader in mobile educational development but at a much lower price point: free.
Blogging using mobile devices could be a challenge if using smartphones. Tiny screens and keyboards make it hard if you are a passenger in a car moving at interstate highway speed.

@DrLepervanche’s Web Media Lab Timeline. Widgets and Gadgets…before e-learning to m-learning and beyond…
Widgets and Gadgets: From E-learning to M-learning and Beyond
Emerging technologies have allowed online learning to add interactive tools to courses. New web, media and mobile applications or widgets, and new devices or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students. Education is moving from e-learning to m-learning and beyond as hybrid methods are also being incorporated to both on-land and online courses. Our Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life. Wireless and mobile technologies allow users to be in a virtual office all the time.(ID #145/Track 2)
