Steven Hedges: Enjoying #efactor2013 some really good stuff coming out of it. Mobile moodle. Nice
This showcase provided an overview of a Moodle mobile phone theme and highlighted the possible advantages a mobile theme can bring to teaching, learning and assessment.
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.
