Development of Mobile Application for Higher Education: An Introduction
Mobile technology plays an important role in the economic development of a country as well as in teaching and learning. The development of mobile teaching and learning programs includes the efforts from course designers, system designers, software developers, teachers, educators, and students. From the industry point of view, it also needs the efforts from many service providers and content providers to implement a good mobile teaching and learning experience (Zhang, An analysis of collaboration in the Australian and Chinese mobile telecommunication markets. Doctor of Philosophy (Economics), University of Wollongong, 2012). All of these elements are essential for a good mobile teaching and learning program. The people who either worked in the classroom or behind the scenes (such as technical support staff) are vital for a successful mobile teaching and learning program. This chapter introduces real cases, experiences, and theories in developing mobile teaching and learning programs in different countries. The technical barriers, difficulties, and solutions are introduced in the following chapters. These invaluable experiences and cases shed light on future mobile teaching and learning system design and development.
