Abstract


A mobile virtual laboratory is developed to help students perform virtual experiments using mobile devices to make it possible for teaching to be conducted anytime anywhere.
In addition, resources and equipment can be integrated and shared efficiently where an environment is created to promote learning interests and efficiency by using mobile devices via the Internet and the GPRS telecommunication networks. Java wireless communication technologies were used in the design which implements a multi-tier architecture in order to integrate different fields of technology. The ultimate objective is to improve the scalability of the system and to allow for the use of Scalable Vector Graphics which makes it possible for developers to create interactive graphical content, with the ability to zoom and resize on displays with different resolutions and aspect ratios.
