eLearning has, to date, mostly been a matter of content being displayed on PCs running Windows, Linux, or MAC OS. Emerging technologies have recently, however, expanded the capabilities and scope of portable and mobile devices to such a degree that it is possible to use them as eLearning media much more effectively than it was even a year ago. Devices such as PDAS with high resolution screens, Phones with higher bandwidth for image and video exchange, iPod and other portable video players, and built-in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity have significantly altered the eLearning system designer's job and responsibilities. New interface ideas, taking into account the need for engaging and multi-modal access to eLearning content, have added to the possibilities for eLearning systems.
