Mapping the Emerging Global Mobile Education and E-textbook Publishing Markets
Mobile connectivity enables new ways of teaching and learning that will ultimately improve educational performance and results, while opening up new markets for mobile operators across the world. Mobile devices make it easier to access up-to-date educational materials, facilitate collaboration and strengthen learner engagement.
The GSMA’s Mobile Education initiative aims to accelerate the adoption of mobile education solutions; in particular, the use of mobile-enabled portable devices, such as e-Readers and tablets, in mainstream education settings. This global initiative seeks to understand and address the barriers and opportunities in this emerging market.
While education systems are country, or even local authority, specific, we believe that the worldwide sharing of experience and best practice will be vital to understand and act upon the mobile education opportunity.
To help mobile operators become familiar with this new space, we have produced a series of mobile education reports which we hope you will find useful.
