From BBC News: University gives students text books on iPhones

A new initiative at the University of Leeds to issue smartphones to medical students, supported by progress files and assessment modules built by MyKnowledgeMap, has made the BBC News homepage.

"This is a fantastic achievement for both MyKnowledgeMap and the University of Leeds," said Rob Arntsen, CEO of MyKnowledgeMap. "The recognition from the BBC and the positioning of the article on their homepage proves the importance and innovative nature of this collaborative project and justifies all the hard work which has been put into it."

This will be the first time that a UK medical school has provided undergraduates with all the tools they need to study off-campus via mobile phone technology.

MyKnowledgeMap provided the suite of applications for the smartphones which allow the students to undertake assessments. It also provided the institutional software application to allow the management of assessments and the review of student responses.
