11 GPS/AGPS

GPS (Global Positioning System) and AGPS (Assisted GPS) All answers
GPS and AGPS are relevant to services where location matters. AGPS facilitates precise positioning for example inside buildings.

Advantages
Very useful when necessary for learning or teaching.

Disadvantages
Requires special mobile devices or additional devices.


GPS/AGPS as a Facilitator for mLearning (Updated after the Questionnaire)
The potential to use GPS / AGPS was evaluated in the ViCaDiS Project as follows:

  1. Mapping, navigation, directions applications, tracking and location related triggers

GPS/AGPS

The potential and probability of use is on moderate level. Lets spread the results in a normalised diagram (description) to see how answers are related to each others.

GPS_N

We can see, that GPS/AGPS does not have top priority in first development tasks.

Commenting/Discussion subjects

  • What kind of Open Source or cost effective GPS/AGPS services / solutions are available?
  • What kind of features should be considered in educational use of GPS/AGPS?
  • Do you have positive/negative experiences related to educational use of GPS/AGPS?
  • How would you develop educational use of GPS/AGPS on a very limited budged? Can you name actionable first steps for development?
  • What are the implications for ViCaDiS Work Packages?
