Knowledge Tree Goes Mobile

Here's a note from Jo Murray, editor of the Knowledge Tree, an e-journal of learning innovation and research:

"The latest research and innovation in global e-learning practice is mobile. In an exciting development, The Knowledge Tree: an e-Journal of Learning Innovation Edition 8,is now accessible via hand held mobile devices.

Edition 8 focuses on tensions in the convergence of e-learning and e-business. ...

Short industry-focussed video interviews feature e-business and e-learning experts, including Ghent University’s ‘Instructional Sciences’ Professor Dr Martin Valcke, with hints on corporate-education partnerships. Others offer insights on the e-business supply chain, new directions in mobile learning, induction by e-learning and practical approaches to e-learning.

Articles question when social interaction in corporate e-learning is necessary, investigate the gap in e-learning readiness between enterprises and training organisations, challenge the need for flashy multimedia and reflect on networking as a driver of e-learning.

Current research features a selection of useful e-business RSS feeds. "

NOTE: You can access previous research and innovation through the archive copies of the Knowledge Tree:

From Jo:

"Details of how to set up and configure your particular mobile device [for accessing the Knowledge Tree] are available from the Mobile Learning Practitioners Network forum. Free registration is required. Any feedback from mobile device users on this experiment is be very welcome."
