Multi-Criteria Analysis and Advanced Comparative Study between M-learning Development Approaches

Youness Zidoun, Rachid Dehbi, Mohamed Talea


With the great advances in the world of mobile learning, development approaches are a very important challenge in designing an M-learning platform for instructors. The development can quickly become a handicap to the integration of certain functionalities and features if the approach is not very well thought and adapted to the pedagogical model designed for the platform. The purpose of this article is to clarify certain comparative aspects between the various methods of development of mobile learning platforms, their ordering and processing and the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. The authors present a multi-criteria analysis which can help instructors in decision-making by assisting their choice of the mobile development approach according to the most important criteria. This paper constitutes an overview of the m-learning platforms from design implementation point of view and will help researchers implement the pedagogical design model described in previous work.
