MAY 25, 2012 Mobile Devices: Breaking Through the Walled Garden
I am a fan of the HowStuffWorks podcast “Stuff You Should Know” Recently, I listened to the episode titled, “What’s The Future of the Internet” and the discussion on net neutrality and the walled garden of devices got me thinking about how device and OS manufacturers are restricting our experience of the Internet and the implication this could have to learning in general and mobile learning in particular.

DECEMBER 7, 2009 Google Goggles will rock m-learning.
A textual search is useless, but a visual search would allow you to take a photo of the chair and let Google’s servers offer some suggestions about who might have manufactured, designed, or sold it.

“We use BES server to give us relatively secure access to our internal network, says Alfons Schermaier, senior architect at chemicals manufacturer PPG Industries. I’ve written a couple of posts about the differences and the advantages and disadvantages of native applications and web applications when it comes to mobile learning.

MLEARNING IS GOOD Are Apps the Future of Mobile Learning?
| WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2009
This task is made more complicated because of the variety of mobile devices that learners within organizations may have, whereas manufacturers
like Apple can target only the devices they create. If the devices are standardized, organizations can create their own app stores and leverage the app stores of the manufacturers
they choose to go with. As a developer, you constantly look for the “next big thing. Most of us will probably admit that there can be more than one of those “big things. Much organizational learning is unique in what it teaches. MORE >>
