Abstract

The aim of this thesis is to provide design recommendations for a context-appropriate user interface enabling mobile learning (mLearning). mLearning applications are being used on mobile devices in classrooms with students of all ages. How can the technology be merged within a device's operating system to help manage various phone events in order to aid in the management of learning activities. Participatory design was used and both qualitative and quantitative data was collected. Two interviews of 17 conveniently selected adult participants were performed which discuss time management strategies and specific uses of various technologies on mobile phones with participants. I conclude that a mobile learning prototype should (1) be able to collect information autonomously; (2) should have a variety of functionalities; (3) should have modular functionalities in order to allow the user to customize the device; and (4) should have an interface as flexible as possible to cater to a variety of users
