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)
