Keywords:mobile learning, resource-based learning, distance course, electronic manual, leadership, university
In the article, the authors consider mobile learning as a form of resource-based learning of university students in the study of professionally-oriented disciplines. The advantages of mobile learning are revealed: using the latest technology in training; using lightweight, compact, portable devices in training; delivering blended, resource-oriented learning; providing a quality support for training in any format; teaching students with special needs; reducing the costs of educational support; using the new ways of educational content developing; providing the continuous targeted support for the educational process; creating a fun, exciting and comfortable learning experience. The conditions necessary for organization of mobile education in the educational environment of a modern university are described: availability of mobile devices for students and teachers; access to developed electronic educational resources (electronic textbooks and manuals, educational websites, distance learning courses); organization of feedback between the teacher and the student. On the example of the discipline "Fundamentals of Leadership" at the University of Ukoopspilks "Poltava University of Economics and Trade" (PUET), Ukraine, the authors propose ways of organizing mobile learning for distance students. The developed distance course (via distance learning platform Moodle) and the electronic manual on "Fundamentals of Leadership" for mobile devices (program Dr.Explain) are offered. The opportunities and benefits of Dr.Explain program, which allows you to create e-learning manuals for mobile learning, are demonstrated. The article states that Dr.Explain is a convenient and effective tool / aid for developing a variety of electronic educational resources, ranging from electronic lectures and manuals to complete electronic courseware package and educational Internet resources. The authors emphasize that for mobile learning, it is necessary to create electronic teaching aids in the formats supported by mobile devices.
