MLE-Moodle is an out-of-the-box mobile Learning (mLearning) system, designed for mobile phones.
It is realized as a plugin for the open-source Learning Management System (LMS) Moodle. Just copy the MLE-Moodle files to your Moodle-installation and your eLearning system is now a mLearning system too.
So with MLE-Moodle you can enhance your eLearning system to mobile Learning, and can learn either with your mobile phone (mLearning) or with your PC / Notebook (eLearning).
On the mobile phone you can either use the built-in mobile browser to access MLE-Moodle. Or you can use a special mobile phone application which was designed for learning on mobile phones (called MLE phone client).
What is mobile Learning (mLearning) and how is it realized with MLE-Moodle?
mLearning uses mobile phones as a medium for learning. With mLearning it is possible to use every kind of waiting-time for learning, no matter where you are. [snip]
