Abstract

The handheld devices have crossed the 1 billion mark in 2005. These devices have many advantages like ubiquity, convenience, instant connectivity, personalization, coverage, better battery life, localization of product and services. Thus the next generation E-learning will be M-learning (i.e. Mobile learning). In last decade, there is an exponential growth of e-learning tools and technologies. There is an ample choice for e-learning software development tools and technologies for desktop computers. But these tools cannot be used for developing e-learning softwares for mobile devices because of constraints of the device. Simulation of a teacher of programming language with the help of multimedia and software simulations is a difficult job. In case of m-learning this task become more difficult. Thus entire new approach is necessary for developing the m-learning softwares for mobile devices. In this paper, the new technologies have been discussed to do this job effectively and efficiently. All the developed applications have tested with the help of series 60 Symbian Operating System based Nokia 6630 device.
