Agylia and the University of the West of England (UWE) invite everyone with an interest in education and training to take part in the Learning Technology Research Project 2016 – this year's biggest community research project into the use of mobile learning.
The Learning Technology Research Project 2016 launches on Thursday 10th November.
Tim Buff, CEO & Chief Learning Strategist at Agylia said, “Mobile learning is one of the biggest trends in modern education and is often described as the future of digital learning. The Learning Technology Research Project 2016 aims to understand the way people interact with digital learning and support resources on their mobile devices - and how these can be used to enhance the way people learn.”
A dedicated Learning Technology Research Project 2016 App – available to download for Apple and Android phones and tablets – will provide participants with hands-on involvement in the research, in addition to the opportunity to experience mobile learning in action.
Research participants will undergo a two-week training programme on the subject of modern learning technologies, including social learning, gamification, and augmented and virtual reality. This will be delivered as a mix of short mobile learning modules, plus quizzes and surveys, direct to phones or tablets. In addition, there will be an opportunity to meet a panel of experts and network with other project participants via the discussion forum in the App.
All participants will receive a free copy of the summary research report.
“I invite learning and development, HR and IT professionals, and everyone with an interest in training and education, to participate in the research and to share their experiences,” added Buff. “The findings will be invaluable in helping us all to understand how mobile technology can be used to improve and advance the communication of knowledge.”
All research participants will receive a certificate and a free copy of the summary research report.
The Learning Technology Research Project 2016 is guided and supported researchers from UWE, and will use the Agylia Learning Management System and mobile learning Apps to deliver the digital learning resources and track research outcomes.
