Chamilo’s first steps in mobile learning

Last week we started our first baby steps in mobile learning, thanks to our long preparations, an edition of PHPArchitect, and the efforts of one of BeezNest’s employees (Christian), who wanted to try it out.

The very first result was something like this

Dokeos' users list appears on cell phone

Then I suugested he got a little deeper and got a list of courses-related events and we got this

This feature, along with a whole range of additional features, will probably make it into the corporate version first, and then move to the free version, once the costs of development have been covered by corporate customers.

All in all, this is a very exciting feature to have and, although it doesn’t get into the classic expectations of an m-learning system, it certainly opens the door very wide for it. Now the next steps are to

  • allow a student to send comments in the forum
  • allow a student to take simple tests
  • allow a student to reply to surveys
  • allow teachers to check the reports of their students’ progress

These little features, that could get Chamilo right into the m-learning market, will all make it to the corporate version first, then be applied to the free version.

    The development in Dokeos corp is intenting to develop a portable interface that any mobile with some kind of internet capability (even non-graphic) can use. Using Dokeos fully as it is is already possible with recent and expensive mobile phones, but we want to make the interface nice to use from a mobile, by reducing the unnecessary stuff and keeping things clear and simple.
