Week 2 Summary

Learners, we thank you for your continuing participation in this course. We began Week 2 with a closer look at the mobile device. We considered how applications work in a smartphone. We also learnt how a mobile phone uses wireless communication technologies guaranteeing quality of voice and data traffic. In the course forums and chat rooms, we had very good participation. As in the first week, many of you came up with some really fresh perspectives and potential solutions- for example, there was a discussion of ideas on how to use call/message blast services in support of health measures or to enhance library services.

We featured two talks on m-learning this week and one on mobiles in agriculture, both with speakers who are well-recognised for their research contributions and innovation.

We look forward to your continued participation. Enjoy the course!
