Abstract

This workshop will train participants how to use an interactive mobile learning platform and Mobile Device Management (MDM) called iClass developed at the University of Hong Kong. Such systems could facilitate real-time interactive class discussion through drawing, keywords, e-book and multimedia via a cloud network. The MDM solution can provide a full control for teacher to monitor and control the tablet PCs and mobile devices in a class so that the devices could be directed to any particular apps or activities, or disable from certain function, or centralised management of apps installation or deletion. These solutions are deployed in schools and universities in HK, Mainland China and Singapore.
