Changes of Learning in Mobile Scenarios - Analysis and Comparison of Use and Browsing of a Virtual Campus in Mobile Scenarios

Abstract

Mobility and working with mobile devices is now a well-established reality in our society. Students use the train, car or weekend away to work on their teaching materials. Likewise, technology allows for the generation of new content formats every day – letting us write text and convert it automatically into voice, web, PDF or DVD. This article proposes detailed monitoring of the browsing logs of a number of students using a mobile device (iPad) in order to better understand students’ habits. The study is based on a comparison of browsing habits on PCs and mobile devices, and includes contextual observation fieldwork. Thus, the study combines both quantitative and qualitative data. Results obtained using this methodology will provide us with better insight of user navigational behaviour with respect to the used devices.
