mLearn 2005, the 4th World conference
on mLearning, will fulfil the need for stimulating critical debate on and
research into theories, approaches, principles and applications of
mLearning (mobile learning). It will provide an opportunity for
professionals from industry, as well as researchers, educators,
technologists and practitioners, to share their knowledge, experience and
research in the various areas where mLearning is applied. The conference
will also serve as an incubator to promote mLearning in Africa.
mLearn 2005 will build upon the
findings and shared knowledge of the preceding conferences:
Two mobile learning
projects, both supported by the European Commission, have collaborated to
organise a series of international conferences on Mobile and Ambient
Learning. Both projects brought an international perspective to the
conferences - MOBIlearn
has partners in Australia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Spain,
Switzerland, the UK and USA, and m-learning
has partners in Italy, Sweden and the UK.
mLearn 2005 is jointly organised by the
Tshwane University of Technology, the University of South Africa and the
University of Pretoria.
