Recent advances in mobile multimedia technology have brought about fundamental changes to both education and entertainment. Institutions are now grappling with ways to bridge existing course management systems (CMS) with mobile technologies using native mobile apps as well as web apps (Daniels, 2012). This poster demonstration will introduce a suite of mobile apps that interact with specific Moodle CMS modules to reinforce oral production activities for language learning purposes. The suite includes a VideoBoard app, a VoiceShadowing app and a SlideShow app. The VoiceBoard app allows learners to record video or audio on a mobile device and to submit the media directly to a ‘VideoBoard’ module within a Moodle course. Using the VoiceShadowing app, learners can simultaneously listen to sample target language audio files, record their ‘shadowed’ speech and upload their recording to the Moodle ‘VoiceShadow’ module. Finally the SlideShow app provides a simple mobile interface for learners to capture images and recorded captions, which are then automatically converted to an online slideshow in Moodle. These mobile apps are currently available on the Apple App Store for free and require the installation of accompanying Moodle modules. Development of an Android-based version of each app is underway.
