There are a lot of resources out there about elearning, mlearning and gamification and sometimes it’s really hard to find the valuable ones. Here are some readings for those interested in: mlearning, gamification applied in education and one more about how to deliver better training.
Global Mobile Learning Implementations and Trends
This free ebook is the result of the experience of a group of researchers about their experience of implementing mlearning in education. What I really like the most is that this ebook goes beyond the advantages of mlearning and goes to the point: how they did it, the reasons it succeed or why it failed, how countries are trying to implement it in their context, etc.
The first time I heard about this ebook was due to a post written by Ignatia de Waard in her blog. Ignatia is well-known as the lead of the mobile #MOOC and obviously she’s one of the contributors of this valuable ebook. The ebook covers different areas of mlearning in education, so if you are really interested in mlearning you should print this out and read it carefully.
