MULTIMEDIA MOBILE CONTENT DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK AND METHODOLOGY FOR DEVELOPING M-LEARNING APPLICATIONS
Mobile devices limitations such as small screen resolution, limited data space and slow processing speed pose challenges to the developers in developing good m-learning applications. Therefore, aspects such as content design, navigation design and mobile HCI are critical and need greater attention during the development phase. The purpose of this paper is to discuss a Multimedia Mobile Content Development (MMCD) Framework and Methodology for developing an effective m-Learning application that focuses on user needs. MMCD is based on the characteristic of an agile development model and by using a Flash Light (FL) technology which is widely supported by today’s mobile devices, the final output is compatible with the majorities of available mobile devices which would encourage mobile-learning activities. Focus on the object or content design and the navigation control are two development aspects that help the development of learning application via mobile device optimized.
