Abstract


In the last years several mobile learning courses have been experimented. The increasing popularity and additional features of mobile devices is one of the key reasons for mobile learning courses development. The superior portability and accessibility of those equipments makes them suitable for remote and interactive learning courses. In this context, this paper focuses on the implementation of a mobile learning framework for an analog electronics course. This course was designed as a complement to the classic analog electronics courses. This course consists of several interactive multimedia modules, at the end of which students have to answer several oriented questions. These give feedback about the learning process to the teacher, which receives SMS messages with the results. A specific module is responsible for storing and managing the answers in a server, where all the results from students are processed in a competitive learning based methodology application.
