My Top 10 Mobile Tools for Learning


Jane Hart from the Center for Learning & Performance Technologies is still looking for Top 10 Tools for Learning. Anyone who wants to add their knowledge feel free to go to http://www.c4lpt.co.uk/recommended/yours.html and add your own list.


I have added my Top 10 Mobile Tools for Learning and they are:

  1. Opera mini browser http://www.operamini.com/ : this browser saves me on download time and size (which comes down to saving money).
  2. Find.mobi http://find.mobi/ mobile search engine delight, but unfortunately only in English for the moment.
  3. QIK http://qik.com/ real live streaming right from your mobile. Great for immediate sharing of knowledge or teaching on the go.
  4. Socialight Mixtape http://socialight.com/channels/mixtape is a great way to mix/edit your own mobile walking tour. Really great also for mlearning, for example if you want to make a tour on the Georgian architecture, the first Women Entrepreneurs in a city …
  5. Quickmark http://www.quickmark.com.tw/En/basic/index.asp is a really cool QRcode reader that can easily be installed and catches QRcodes quickly and efficiently.
  6. Flickr mobile http://m.flickr.com/ for my mobile on the go shots.
  7. YouTube mobile http://m.youtube.com/ for really easy uploading of mobile videos.
  8. Mobile active http://mobileactive.org/ keeps me informed on great mobile projects throughout the world.
  9. Fring (VOIP) http://www.fring.com/ which keeps me connected to other mobile colleagues and friends. Looking forward to the Fring mini, which promises to be a solution for global cell phones that are not VOIP enabled.
  10. Mobile study questionnaires http://www.mobilestudy.org/home/ a really easy and free way to give your learners access to mobile multiple choice quizzes.
Let me know any great mobile tools you are using, always hungry to learn!
