Abstract

Mobile has become the preferred way for internet access. This important change has generated transformations “equally important” in education and teaching fields, significantly increasing the importance of mobile learning. Using the User-Centered Design and Participatory Planning methodologies, 20 university students were involved in the mobile course model design, defined as “USiena model”. The objective of this research was to compare the model course designed with a model course used by other institutions present in iTunesU platform, hereinafter described as a “Sparring model”. Using the experimental method, 32 students were involved in a “pilot study” built to evaluate the learning level of both models, comparing the knowledge acquired by learners. The experimental hypothesis was that the USiena model, compared to the Sparring model, would facilitate the contents transmission to learners improving learning. The results of the experimentation confirmed our hypothesis.
