Using Mobile Learning to Enhance Integrated Multimedia Learning at DeVry Online
Abstract: As more students move away from PCs to rely increasingly on mobile devices, online educational programs must find innovative ways to deliver mobile learning more effectively. We have examined key issues of online programs by researching the innovative online learning models presented at the previous Global Learn, Global TIME and E-Learn Conferences (Son & Wambalaba, 2008, Son & Goldstone, 2010, Son & Goldstone, 2011, Son & Goldstone, 2012, Son & Simonian, 2013). At the current Conference, we will discuss how mobile learning should be designed to improve on these models. DeVry University has been building its unique mobile site to meet students’ growing demand for tailored mobile content. Using the example of DeVry Online, we will explore innovative multimedia learning strategies, vital in the implementation of evolving mobile instructional technology.
