Webinar by Ioana Gatzka, FHNW, April 30, 2015
In the last few years universities have shown big interest in mobile learning and have developed apps and courses suited for such an activity. Nevertheless, the overall adoption of mobile learning has been lagging. Some reasons are technological, others more of a didactical character. In developing a mobile learning adoption strategy the theory of planned behavior (Ajzen, 1991) has shown a path that can be taken which leads to good results. The studies conducted applying this theory regarding mobile learning readiness show that the main positive influences on mobile learning adoption are perceived self-efficacy, instructor readiness and perceived usefulness.
The development of the mobile Moodle app “moodchapp” at three Swiss universities that will be showcased in the webinar is following this path and might be also your first step in adopting mobile learning at your institution. It is developed under the GNU License Agreement.
Feel free to try out the app “moodchapp” available for iOS and Android.
