iMobileU open and connect schools with mobile device
Open era, mobile era
IMobileU is an initiative by many top US schools, which include:
MIT, University of North Carolina, Indiana University, West Virginia University, University of Iowa, Case Western Reserve, University of Waikato, Saint Louis University, William and Mary, University of Delaware, Harvard University. In particular, Harvard has strongly endorsed the iMobileU project.
The main credit for this initiative should be given to MIT mobile web, which is also an open source project. MIT mobile web is a web based mobile application developed with MySQL and PHP. However, the vision of the iMobileU project is not limited to only working on Mit mobile web project. It will extend it to both web and native mobile applications across different mobile devices, for example, iPhone, Android, Blackberry.
iMobileU project is in its early stage. The conference calls among different universities are however very frequent for the collaboration. We will keep tracking of the iMobileU project development.
