A German Professor and His Academic Report on M-Learning


March 31, 2010


The Institute of German Studies held an academic report on Mobile Learning (M-Learning) for all faculty members, postgraduate and senior undergraduate students of their Institute at East No.5 Room 202 on March 19, 2010. The reporter was Prof. Dr. Hymo Mitschian from Kassel University who was invited to

be a short-term visiting expert to SIS, ZJU. And the host of this report was the vice head of German

Institute, associate professor Li Yuan.


The report focusing on M-Learning can be generally divided into three parts: “E-learning” and its

importance in our everyday learning; details about M-Learning and its similarities and differences

compared with E-learning; and introduction of the German studies software in iPhone and points about

media-based German learning.


People present were all immersed in the original content, impressed by the professor’s sense of humor.

During the report, students and faculty members took an active part in the Q&A section with the

Professor. What’s more, the professor compared the German-Study Software in iPhone with E-Dictionary

“King of German” which is widely used by students. In sum, the discussion was pleasant and harmonious.

And students expressed their fascination of the fabulous “multi-media learning world”.


The Institute of German Studies will offer similar topics of academic reports in the near future.

Students who are interested should look for further information on the website.
