Pocket Learning

A New Platform for Mobile Education?


Pocket Learning is a platform to deliver how-to, need-to, just-in-time learning anywhere, anytime. An experiment on mobile education. It is an application for the iPhone with example lessons on taking better pictures with the iPhone.

The lessons use short procedural instructions, self-paced lessons, interactive examples and participatory exercises to demonstrate the potential of the platform.
