The introduction of mobile technology in education has widened the concept of classroom, and not only in terms of size! Students can now access course material from their smartphones or tablets, and collaborate with each other outside the school walls, while teachers support the learning process and comment their student’s work at a distance.

To discuss both pedagogical and technical aspects of mobile learning in higher education, we welcome two guest speakers: Inge de Waard, eLearning coordinator and researcher at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium and René Aubé, Blackboard Learning Management System Administrator at the Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB).
