Abstract:

Mobile technology has been seen as a major asset in on-site education for a decade, but until recently, many practi- cal issues have reduced the functionality and usability of applications. Different applications use varying approaches and platforms from mobile phones to larger tablet and laptop computers. The paper discusses the present evolution version of the Pulu application developed in LAMB project and how the pedagogic premises of the project have been realised in the technical development process. The client has new functionalities for designing routes and implemen- tation of a system question answering by moving in the environment. The system has also a new web based repository for sharing route data and other information.
