Challenges for e-Learning Environments in m-Learning Contexts: A survey about the hardware, software, and educational dimensions

Keywords: Human-Computer Interaction; Electronic Learning Environment; Mobile Devices; Interaction Styles

Abstract:
e-Learning environments are applications that use the Web infra-structure to support teaching and learning activities. Their user interfaces were designed to have good usability using a desktop computer with keyboard and mouse as input devices and a high resolution medium-size display and speak loud as output devices. Devices, such as tablets and smartphones, have computational power enough to render Web pages, allowing mobile users navigate through the e-Learning environments and closing the e-Learning environments to the m-Learning contexts. But to have an effective use in the mobile context, the e-Learning environments need to be analyzed in three dimensions: hardware, software, and educational. This paper presents a survey about works in merging e-Learning environments and m-Learning and discusses about challenges such hardware and software integration, integration between the browser and the environment and changes on the teaching and learning activities.
