Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project: A global technology initiative by Jacob Hodges

The 'Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project: a global technology initiative', was a two-year project that included e-Learning and medical professionals from academia, commercial, government and NGO representing 24 countries from five continents. It focused on providing training/education in areas with low-bandwidth and limited internet connectivity and infrastructure.

This eBook provides readers with -
- a comprehensive education and training app that contains six major content categories (i.e., learning, reference library, standards, networking, mission tools, and mission pack);
- access to, and use of, the Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project source code for iOS and Android devices, and the online content catalogue repository to create, share and develop apps;
- the data collection and evaluation strategy that incorporated social responsibility, ethical practices, solid research approaches and professional standards;
- an in-depth review of the evaluation finding on the accessibility, effectiveness, satisfaction/self-efficacy, utility and usefulness of mobile technologies as a learning medium; and
- conclusions on what made the app learner centered (i.e., built on the skills and knowledge of the individual/teams), knowledge centered (i.e., providing educational content that is factually sound), and community centered (i.e., promoted the sharing of knowledge and collaboration).

It also provides in-depth information on what is contained in the six major content categories that were developed (i.e., library, networking, mission packs, mission tools, leaning, and standards), which is also available in both the Apple and Android Markets.

His advice and counsel is sought for innovative approaches for achieving solutions as well as out-of-the-box thinking that provide practical approaches to problem solving. In the last fifteen years, Jacob has conducted several technology assessments on speech-enabled capabilities and has been the catalyst for more than 20 e-Learning-related science and technology research projects. He instigated three innovative multinational e-Learning initiatives called the Coalition Chat Line (CCL), Machine Language Mapping (MLM) and the Multinational Virtual Learning Environment (MVLE), which were the result of US/International e-Learning requirements. He has also conducted over 20 working group meetings focused on identifying potential solutions to user-requirements in a global setting. Jacob instigated the Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project based on the research findings from the MVLE Project. He conducted internet and independent research into mobile providers, as well as met with several organizations before developing a “Voice of the Customer (VOC)” matrix to select the project’s technical advisor. He provided program management and technical support to the Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project Manager, technical support to the Testing & Evaluation Team, and assisted the MoLE Science & Technology (S&T) Coordinator in conducting S&T reviews.
