My colleague Terese Bird shared this news with me, which might have some implications for TIGER. Medical students at Leeds University are given iPhones as part of their study. The medical students in their final two years spend much of their time in hospitals, GP surgeries and clinics. The iPhones give them the opportunity to stay in contact with the tutors, course materials and textbooks.
For TIGER, if we make OERs in mobile format, we could increase the chance that students and practitioners in place of work want to use them.
