Connecting dots for digital learning and teaching

MERLOT Supports Mobile Learning

MERLOT – Multimedia Educational Resources for Learning and Online Teaching –  is a free and open online community of resources designed primarily for faculty, staff and students of higher education from around the world to share their learning materials and pedagogy. It’s a very important Open Educational Resources (OER) repository.

MERLOT has developed new Mobile Learning Portal to support users to develop strategies and plans for using mobile devices in teaching and learning; to choose “best practices” for faculty and staff to design and use mobile applications; and to find existing mobile apps that can be reused and/or adapted for instructional purposes.


The free MERLOT OER Search App for iOS and Android‐based mobile devices searches the MERLOT database for Open Educational materials. An extension of MERLOT’s unique proprietary search and system access technologies, the MERLOT OER Search App enables mobile users to retrieve detailed, discipline‐based information on thousands of Open Courses, Open Texts, and Open Journal articles directly from MERLOT’s internationally renowned digital library.
