Co-design and Co-deployment Methodologies for Innovative m-Learning Systems.
Multiplatform E-Learning Systems and Technologies: Mobile Devices for Ubiquitous ICT-Based Education.
Building innovative m-learning systems can be challenging, because innovative technology is tied to innovative practice, and thus the design process needs to consider the social and professional context in which a technology is to be deployed. In this chapter we describe a methodology for co-design in m-learning, which includes stakeholders from the domain in the technology design team. Through a case study of a project to support nurses on placement, we show that co-design should be accompanied by co-deployment in order to manage the reception and eventual acceptance of new technology in a particular environment. We present both our co-design and co-deployment methodologies, and describe the techniques that are applicable at each stage.
