    1st International ELeGI Conference on Advanced Technology for Enhanced Learning

    This paper describes our attempts to write GRID clients for Mobile Devices, such as a PDA, which have restrictive computational and storage facilities. Our experiences are based on an implementation of a mobile GRID client for Finesse, an existing web-based e-learning system.

    At this stage of our work we are not looking to novel applications of mobile learning, but rather are exploring the feasibility of mobile devices as GRID platforms, with novel learning applications as our future aim. We examine Java, .NET and proxy solutions and look ahead to the next generation of WSRF-based GRID Infrastructure.
