The presentation  included information about how mobile phone features can be used directly with Moodle such as how a photo can be loaded directly into a discussion forum (with possible GPS data depending on the phone), how photos or videos can go straight into an assessment for evidence collection, the possibilities of greater 24/7 access to resources, live voting and mobile phone reformatting options which enables quizzes and other useful features that can be turned into a portable format.

Philip Butler:

Andrew provided a brief overview of mobile theme implementation and a few possible customisations.
