Watch Connected: The Movie
A fictional day-in-the-life account highlights some of
the potential benefits in a higher education setting
when every student, faculty, and staff member is
"connected." The applications portrayed in the film are
purely speculative; however they're based on needs
and ideas uncovered by our research - and we've
already been making strides to transform this vision of
mobile learning (mLearning) into reality.

Stanford Report, September 24, 2008
Online resources go mobile with student-developed iPhone applications

Stanford illustrates how integral high tech
innovation is at every level of the university
Stanford is in the beginning stages of making several of its core web-based systems
and services available to students as applications on the iPhone

A suite of five software applications developed by students
• Two for course management, registration and billing
• Access to Stanford's searchable campus map
• Get team scores and schedules
• Check listings in the university's online directory

Stanford University is offering a computer science course this fall titled
   iPhone Application Programming. The class, one of the first of its kind in
   the country, currently has more than 80 students registered

University of Louisville First To Offer Wireless Devices
  and Technology To Medical Students - Business Wire

• Medical students at the University of Louisville now will be
  able to use wireless technology to enhance their education
  and improve the clinical care of patients.
• Devices will include medical applications, such as ePocrates
  and medical and drug reference databases and can be used
  to access the university’s email program and address book
In The News
This innovative initiative will teach medical students how to use a
   wireless device to improve patient care and ensure that students
     have the technology skills needed as practicing physicians

•   A single device, which can replace the need to carry multiple devices,
    including a separate phone, PDA and pager

•   Fast and easy access to medical information and other drug reference
    guides through applications such as ePocrates.
•   A virtual library of textbooks and medical references at their fingertips

•   The ability to do research on medical topics anytime and anywhere,
    without being bound to a PC with Internet access

•   The ability to customize a phone to include information on a student's
    current rotations or areas of study

•   The ability to sync with the university's email program and address
    book, keeping students in touch with their classmates and
                  GET AHEAD OF THE CURVE NOW!
Things to Remember

• Vision - Think BIG – don’t limit vision to only what is available

• Involvement - Faculty & Administration need to be involved with
preliminary planning from the very beginning

• Core Team - Develop a core team to expand vision and determine
steps necessary to develop a program (Faculty, students, and I.T.
collaborate). Engage external partners

• Applications - Involve all constituents in selection of applications
for development from the very beginning. Applications are what
make the program successful (not just a device but an educational

 Page 13
Lessons Learned

• Start NOW Don’t Wait and Plan Early – Start your plans NOW. Rolling
something out in fall 2009 means that planning should begin now

• Collaborate with all Constituents - Faculty collaboration is crucial.
Without Faculty involvement in the project you risk hitting the sweet spot of
providing a mobile learning application that has an impact

• Integrate Technology into Curriculum - For a program to be truly
successful, a critical mass of classes must integrate the devices into daily

• Partner with Others - Establishing partnerships with 3rd party applications
developers, equipment manufacturers, and carriers is crucial to the process

• Communicate - Communicate with faculty and students early and often.
Ask for feedback to gain true buy-in
