Re: Announcing the Mobile Sakai Project

As per https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/MOBILE/Home, Charles Sturt University is interested to participate and contribute to this project both for mobile phones and tablets. We are looking forward to movement on this project to see much of Sakai OAE "mobilised" by mid-2012 (ore earlier if possible)!
Regards
Philip

I think it is important to distinguish between two types of mobile effort, even though they may share code and people:
- The project that is about providing data extracts that fit into a campus-wide initiative to get data to phones
- The project that is about providing a full Sakai learning experience on a larger device like a tablet

So although it is all mobile, there could legitimately be more than one project. At Cambridge our greatest current interest is in the second scenario although we have some interest in the first.
