Apps for mobile  learning: from theory to real world  application
with Caroline Moore

When: Sunday 18 December 2011, 4pm GMT

Caroline reported on a survey of language learning apps carried out with Paul Sweeney, and the features that they liked and those they didn’t.  She then described how she has applied this learning in two mobile app projects that she is working on. The first is an arcade style iPhone vocab game and the second is a highly ambitious project to adapt existing Adobe Flash-based course materials originally designed for CDROM for learners of English, French, Spanish and German. She described the challenges that had to be overcome, including decisions about what technologies and platforms to adopt, copyright and intellectual property issues, and how to make such projects sustainable and commercially viable.
