Abstract [en]

Location-based services are rapidly becoming accessible to a wide audience using the GPS available in many mobile phones. However, an even wider audience can be reached using positioning based on the GSM cell, a technique which is available on many more phones, and which is a solution that also works indoors and underground which is not the case for GPS receivers. In this paper, we describe a study in which a location-based reminder system has been developed for mobile learning in chemistry. The results indicate that such location-based reminders are useful for detecting m-learning opportunities, and that the respondents saw these opportunities as bonus studying time, when they would not have done anything else anyway. Most respondents were also more positive about studying chemistry on their mobile phones after the study than before the study.
