An offer: interested in to take over Mobile audio wiki project?

Wed, 31 Mar 2010 07:35:35 +0000

The MobilED – mobile audio wiki – project was a research project we started in 2006. The most active years were 2006-2007, when we build a working prototype and conducted testing in two schools in South Africa. Still in 2008 we did some more testing of the service in Finland with the idea of mobile  [...]

Wikimania 2009

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 17:32:28 +0000

The  Wikimania 2009 is, again, an amazing gathering of Wikipedians and Wikimedians: editors, activists, researchers. I am presenting MobilED with the title “Audio Wiki for Mobile Communities: Information Systems for the Rest of Us”. My angle is to focus on how the audio wiki could be used to build up services providing “… classifieds and forums for jobs, housing, for sale, [...]

When Mobile audio wikis will take off?

Thu, 09 Apr 2009 06:19:31 +0000

We were happy to found out that we are no more alone with the mobile audio wiki idea. We already knew that some people in IBM Indian Research Laboratory are developing several audio-based information systems relying on speech technologies and have also thought to integrate text messaging (SMS) in them. However, as far as we know, [...]

Demoing MobilED in GTF’08

Thu, 02 Oct 2008 09:53:56 +0000

So we have been presenting MobilED Community Wiki at Grasping The Future 08 – conference in Helsinki for two days. The reception has been surprisingly positive and interested, as both the Community Wiki and Audio Encyclopaedia -applications are primarily designed for cultures with stronger oral tradition and less internet than our Finnish culture. We are [...]

Fri, 26 Sep 2008 09:03:13 +0000

Have you heard of Craig’s list? It’s pretty popular. Why? It’s a service with information that everyone needs once in a while. It’s local classifieds and forums, which are community moderated and free. The MobilED Community Wiki brings the same services to mobile users. No need for Internet access or smart phones – MobilED works [...]

Local community wiki with news and classifieds

Thu, 11 Sep 2008 09:16:10 +0000

This week we have been setting up a new MobilED server that works as a platform for local news and classifieds. The basic idea is still the same – MobilED is an audio wiki, you may reach with your phone – but this time it is designed for very specific purpose. The local community service works [...]

New direction?

Fri, 09 May 2008 00:21:18 +0000

It has been quiet in the MobilED project. In the Helsinki team we have been writing an article where we conclude that probably the best area where one could use MobilED technology, and the basic interaction provided with it, could actually be rather generic community information system than a service used in formal education, such as [...]

The UNICEF’s NY Headquarters’ Division of Communication has a great new initiative called UNIWiki. The big question in the UNICEF UniWiki projects is: “How do we connect people who have no access to computers or the internet to people who do? How do we allow for some of the same faculties and functions that people in [...]
