[L3T] L3T goes NFC

App for NFC

App for NFC

Im Rahmen einer Masterarbeit haben wir über die Möglichkeiten und Potentiale von Near Field Communication, kurz NFC, nachgedacht. Dazu wurde auch ein kleiner Prototyp, eine Android App, erstellt. Mit diesem kann man sämtliche Kapitel von L3T auf einen NFC-Tag schreiben, welcher dann mittels NFC-Reader auslesbar ist.

Hier kann man sich die App runterladen im Playstore [Link].

[publication] M-Learning in Sub Saharan Africa Context- What is it about

Our publication at this year ED-Media Conference in Victoria, Canada about “M-Learning in Sub Saharan Africa Context – What is it about” is now online available.


Mobile devices are changing the social, educational and economic situation especially in developing countries. Based on recent scientific publications, conference reports and educational blogs meaningful trends and critical challenges with reference to Sub Saharan Africa are explored in this meta-study. Since mobile phones are increasingly affordable and accessible this has become one of the most important topics concerning future education in Sub Saharan Africa. They are seen as key technology for bringing educational opportunities to even the most marginalized populations. The development of and the needs for education in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) differs arbitrarily from other parts of the world. M-learning is one of the most emerging fields. This publication articulates and summarizes the wider issues raised by using mobile phones to deliver and enhance learning for dispersed population in Africa, Finally the key issues for further developments are pointed out to address the future needs for educational strategies.

[iphone] Realfeedback App

Bildschirmfoto 2013-06-21 um 21.09.02Im Rahmen unserer Vorlesung “Mobile Applications 2013” ist die App Realfeedback entstanden. Damit ist es möglich das Audience Response System der TU Graz Realfeedback direkt mit einer native App am iPhone / iPad zu verwenden.

RealFeedback makes it easy to ask questions and get answers, like polling your audience during a lecture. The creator makes a project, adds some questions and shares the project ID with the participants. Each question can be activated individually. As soon as a question is active, participants can answer it until the creator closes it. Then the results are shown to the creator and all participants.
