Evaluating a Low Specification Wirelessly Connected
Palm Pilot as a Means of Supporting Learning. A Pilot Study from the
University of Bristol
This paper disseminates the findings of a pilot study into the
use of wirelessly connected low specification palm pilots to deliver
the equivalent learning materials as those provided through a virtual
learning environment. The study is based on a sample of undergraduate
students who are being taught Economics at the University of Bristol.
The aim of the study was to assess if the concept of was feasible,
and then answer two fundamental questions; do students perceive
a need for the mobile learning, and is it scaleable to a large number
of students. In both cases, the jury is still deciding.
