"Look Ma, No Voice: How We Use Our Mobile Phones"

Duration 00:10:31      Recorded on June 11, 2010

Susan and Dan discuss mobile computing in this brief episode.

Show Notes:

The conversation begins with reference to a blog posting by Marc Rosenberg.

The rest of the discussion centers on what we do with our phones and ways they could be used more effectively. Some of Susan's and Dan's uses:

  • Reading email
  • Reading office documents
  • Photos
  • Web browsing and staying up on web resources

This raises questions about how to design for mobile learning. The trick will be to chunk content into manageable segments.
