Clark Quinn

Someone tweeted about their mobile learning credo, and mentioned the typical ‘mlearning is elearning, extended’ view. Which I rejected, as I believe mlearning is much more (and so should elearning be). Mobile, paper, computers, voodoo, whatever technology works. Note I’m not making the case for schools as they are, a curriculum rethink definitely needs to accompany using technology in schools in many ways.

elearning versus mlearning

Clark Quinn

pointed to this post saying “mLearning is starting to diverge from eLearning not only in specific meaning, but in approach and design as well”, and I want to politely disagree. Depends, of course, on what you mean by elearning, to start with. The clear implication is that elearning is about courses on the desktop. The full spectrum of how digital technology, even desktop, can be supporting performance.
