Abstract

As an additional opportunity for personalized learning, within a university course, a new mobile learning module was designed and implemented to facilitate students’ learning based on elective course readings. Facebook Groups were launched as shared learning spaces, each dedicated to one of the shortlisted titles. Each Asynchronous (Audio)Book Club (AABC) was structured via identical learning activities designed to foster cognitive and metacognitive learning processes and provide social aspect to reading. Creation of an Evaluation Toolkit is one of the objectives of a larger research project. The first actionable and possibly transferable evaluation and design principle is reported here, offering an insight regarding the existence of somewhat separate components of the learning experience students derived from the module.
