Abstract

Mobile devices are getting more powerful and affordable with a variety of useful tools to support students in their learning. With these advantages, many researchers have considered it very important to integrate the pedagogical and technological strengths of mobile devices into learning especially for higher education. However, the challenge for academic institutions is to understand which applications are suitable to support their learning activities and how best they might use them in and beyond formal classroom. This case study focuses on the evaluation of basic components that make up the MOBIlearn2 application for supporting students attending a one hour seminar or workshop of their choice. We conclude that the application is highly suitable for the students to collect data for their learning and it is essential to include them in the design stage in effort to reveal hidden errors unknown to developer.
