Abstract

Producing e-learning contents through recording of lectures can be relatively easy and flexible to produce than through the conventional Learning Management System (LMS) due to improved technology. Recording lectures can serve as supplementary, substitutional or creative materials to a conventional traditional lecture. With the popularity and evolution of powerful mobile devices like PDAs, mobile phones, iPods and iPads, which are light and portable it is easy to integrate these devices into the mobile learning system. This paper describes the evolution of pod casts to opencast and a mobile learning opencast framework that helps postgraduate students in higher education adapt educational resources from Opencast Matter horn to their mobile devices which can be used anytime and anywhere.
