leave a comment »

This report Mobile Touch: a guide to implementing e-learning in your organisation  is available at http://trainingo2.net/eli/10164/SUQ%20Mobile%20Touch%20Case%20Study.pdf  .

It is aimed at Vocational Education trainers, but also has generic standards information. It includes best practice recommendations and technical considerations. Useful standards information includes HTML5, and its improved mobile video format (p16). Issues discussed include screen size for mobiles; various mobile browsers and operating systems.

The report appears to have been completed in late 2010, but content and links are still relevant.

Impact of standards work on Australian education

leave a comment »

This paper [PDF 5p] from Link Affiliates describes how ‘technical standards enable an education delivery scenario that would not have been possible a few years ago’. The paper provides examples of how Australian involvement in technical standards has been directly beneficial to Australian education initiatives. The paper comes from a DEEWR-funded ‘Technical Standards for Digital Education’ project which reported earlier in 2010. Irvin Flack and Evan Bailey were among the representatives from CLI.
