The proliferation of mobile devices as well as the convergence of mobile communications and handheld devices offers the opportunity to design technology that will assist individuals and groups to learn anytime, anywhere. Therefore, mobile technologies are increasingly used to facilitate learning process and the use of these technologies creates new opportunities and challenges. However, designing, implementing and evaluating educational technology in mobile learning is largely unchartered territory. This paper describes the design, implementation and evaluation a mobile learning technology, namely IGLOO for mobile devices. It is intended to support educators as well as students in a learning environment. A working prototype system is discussed and evaluated.
