Using Mobile Technology to Enhance Students' Educational Experiences

Monday, February 7, 2005


This case study, which examines educational applications of mobile technology in The Netherlands, is ECAR's first case study from outside of North America. Three Dutch universities—Wageningen University and Research, Radboud University Nijmegen, and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam—have worked diligently to incorporate 3G services into mobile applications used by students. Funded by the Dutch SURF Foundation, these institutions have explored flexible uses of technology in and out of the classroom, mainly through the GIPSY project and the Manolo project. Their experiences offer guidance and insights to institutions of higher education in the United States and elsewhere.
