mLearn is a platform which aims at providing educators with the tools to organize and conduct educational field trips either outdoors (cities, sites etc.) or indoors (e.g. museums). The system consists of a web portal and a mobile application. During the preparatory stage of the educational field trip, the teachers can upload their relevant educational material through the web portal for each point of interest (for outdoors field trips) or each exhibit (for field trips in museums etc).For each field trip, the uploaded educational material is catalogued and stored on a server, and will be openly available to the public so that it can be reused in other educational field trips by other teachers and students.
During the field trip, the students will have access to these educational resources on-site via the mLearn mobile application by either scanning QR codes assigned to exhibits or by arriving at the location of a point of interest.
