Have a read through. The marriage between Moodle and mLearning is inevitable. See some simple apps  developed at the University of the South Pacific..http://www.usp.ac.fj/index.php?id=mlearning .

Although the Jim Judges "jury" is out as far as mobile learning is concerned - this looks like it may be worth investigating further. I haven't read it yet so can't comment or recommend.

The publisher describes this as "A guide with practical examples that gives you hands-on knowledge in creating learning environments for Mobile devices using Moodle"

Major Changes to Copyright On the Way!

Major Changes to Copyright On the Way! | Moodle & Mahara | Scoop.it

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has published the government's intentions for 'modernising copyright' in a document, aptly called Modernising Copyright. It details many changes including some to the fundamental Education Exceptions to Copyright which are to be enacted through secondary legislation by October 2013.

 

Format shifting - moving data from one platform/device to another for personal or study purposes will be permitted.

Copyright Exceptions for education will be 'media neutral' - they will encompass all media - films, music, etc - not just text-based media.

Teachers will be permitted to use materials within the Exceptions for teaching to 'illustrate' their teaching.

The Exceptions will cover VLEs and institutionally managed authenticated services.

There are a number of new measures to assist archives and libraries perform their work of supporting learning and teaching in the digital age.

Further measures to support 'Disability' are also being introduced.
