Dr Phillip Benachour

Senior Teaching Fellow

Research Overview

My current research interests are technology enhanced learning with particular focus on using mobile devices for context aware notifications from virtual learning environments. Situated learning and understanding the users' situation and the context in which mobile learning materials are being accessed in order to best support and develop approaches to information dissemination from vistual learning environments and mobile learning.Other research interests: identifying the potential of mobile phone cameras in teachig and learning (in particular for school children), Moodle analytics, location based activities.
