Abstract

This paper explores the development of a 2011 international collaborative mlearning project that builds upon the success of the implementation of over 30 mlearning projects by the researcher between 2006 and 2011. In particular the project builds upon a 2010 Architecture mlearning project (Cochrane & Rhodes, 2011). The 2011 project aims to produce a significant core group of mlearning evangelists from the participating lecturers and students who will become technology stewards within each of their respective institutions, and facilitating the establishment of further international co-creative mlearning projects in 2012. The 2011 project incorporates international collaboration between Architecture elective course students (Unitec) and public relations students (AUT University) in New Zealand, and groups of students in the UK (Sheffield University and Salford University), Spain (Universitat Rovira i Virgili), and Germany (Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin), where the researcher has established partnerships with lecturers keen to explore the potential of mlearning integration. The learning contexts include: Third year elective Architecture students (Unitec), third year Public Relations students (AUT), second year BA(Hons) Design students (Sheffield), Sociology of Technology elective students (Beuth), MSc Audio Production students (Salford), and second year Educational Technology students (Tarragona). The paper reflects upon the establishment of the international collaboration project and the impact of the use of mobile web 2.0 tools as a foundation for the participant collaborations.
