Mobitel’s ‘MBus’ – Master of Business course via mLearningView(s):
Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel recently tied up with the Department of Accountancy of the Kelaniya University to introduce ‘MBus’ – the Master of Business curriculum via its mLearning platform.
Through this, students have the ability to access faculty on the Internet via a Mobitel Dongle – making the mLearning ‘MBus’ programme a unique mode of education which enriches and exceeds the traditional classroom experience, the mobile phone provider said in a statement. “By pioneering initiatives such as these we are opening up new vistas of opportunities, nurturing students to readily meet real-world challenges, and also encouraging the adoption and usage of new technologies,” noted Mobitel CEO Lalith De Silva. Launched in 2008, mLearning intends to act as a catalyst in fostering a knowledge rich economy. The University of Colombo and Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel launched mLearning, an innovative concept that provides a new gateway to higher education, which was later extended to partnerships with the Open University of Sri Lanka, CIMA Sri Lanka, Edinburgh Napier University of Scotland, the Ministry of Higher Education as well as the Medical College of Sri Lanka. ‘mLearning,’ also known as Mobile Learning, is the process of teaching and learning through the use of mobile and handheld devices such as mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDA), laptops and tablet PCs.
