Mobile Learning Booms in Global Markets
Ryann K. Ellis, T+D, December 3, 2013


Unfortunately the report by Sam Adkins costs money, but there's still stuff to talk about. "The 2012-2017 Middle East Mobile Learning Market reports that revenues from mobile learning products reached $88.3 million in 2012, and are expected to more than double to $205.4 million by 2017." Says Adkins. "Buyers in Africa are not substituting mobile learning for self-paced e-learning; they are leapfrogging e-learning altogether." I would be more positivee but I've been hearing the 'leapfrogging' argument for years now. I'm still waiting for the investment to be made to bring Africa into full internet connectivity.

Online learning allows farmers to connect from the paddock
Unattributed, The Rural, December 3, 2013


I have frequently said "the best place to learn forestry is in the forest." Now I guess I'll have to add that the best place to learn farming is in the paddock (for urbanites, a paddock is a small field where horses and other animals are kept, so I guess we're not talking about whest farming here). "The EverTrain website currently offers five accredited and non-accredited courses and was launched by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre at the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, Wagga." That would be in Australia. [Image: permaculture eXchange]
