Mobile MBA: Attempting to improve learning outcomes and reduce length of studies through an integrative approach

Riedlingen Distance University uses ICT to offer a (literally)‚ Mobile MBA; content is provided in ePub format (electronic publication, not PDF) and delivered via iTunesU to students’ tablet PCs. Video podcasts, as well as self-assessments, are integrated within these ePubs to ensure “learning ergonomy” and mobility. The university’s eCampus allows students to participate in online sessions, communicate with professors and students, use online libraries or work with e-Learning modules. The impact of this integrative approach on learning outcomes, workload, drop-out and length of study is one of our main research fields. First results will be presented and an outlook regarding the next steps in development (course design, transferability, scalability/ suitability for MOOC) will be given.
