Mobile devices are useful in many everyday situations and help people to use their time efficiently, for example when traveling. A smartphone can be used to arrange appointments and a tablet PC or laptop enables urgent emails to be sent from anywhere.
The same applies to continuing education, where course participants want access to learning material not only at home but also when on the move. The mobile app and application-specific editor developed by the Fraunhofer Academy in collaboration with Ziemann.IT makes it possible to learn efficiently using a mobile device. The iAcademy app organizes the teaching content of the continuing education programs in a learning map based on modular units, with quizzes to monitor learning progress and additional multimedia content in the form of videos, graphics and learning games.
