Mobile collaborative learning using multicast MANETs

International Journal of Mobile Communications (IJMC), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2007

Abstract: Collaborative learning outside the classroom is vital for many educational disciplines. Three educational scenarios held outdoors are analysed. In the first scenario, students investigate the ancient architecture, archaeological artefacts and historical location at an archaeological site. In the second scenario, students investigate the environmental and natural resource management, endangered species and flora at a national forest. The third scenario describes collaborative game-based learning at outdoors. Multicast Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) are employed to support students' communication and collaboration. Simulation results show the feasibility of multicast MANETs to support students' communication and collaboration during these three outdoor educational scenarios.
