Abstract
Mobile learning can positively contribute to the development of learning communities by
providing communication options that span contexts and locations, are available
whenever, and are used virtually everywhere (Alexander, 2004; Sharples, Taylor &
Vavoula, 2005). At UC Santa Barbara, we are currently conducting a campus-wide study
that examines whether students' use of technology, both within and beyond the
classroom, correlates with academic performance. While we primarily concentrate on the
use of course websites accessed with non-mobile devices, we have begun to use a
Performance-Based Feedback System (PBFS) to explore (1) how to extend the instructor-
student feedback loop beyond the traditional classroom setting, (2) how knowledge
transfer can be accomplished using mobile devices, and (3) what technical challenges
must be overcome. In this paper, we examine ways that mobile networking technologies
can foster the creation of learning communities and provide new methods for studying
knowledge transfer.
