Use of mobile technologies in tourism : natural health resorts study
Boštjan Brumen, Peter Planinc, Tomi Špindler, Mitja Gorenak, Tanja Lešnik Štuhec, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: Mobile technologies have drastically changed the way people do everyday activities. Tasks previously reserved for desktop environments have moved to mobile devices, and nowadays, half of the internet traffic is stemming from mobile devices. The tourism industry is no exempt from the shift from desktop to mobile. In our research, we check to what extent natural health resorts have adapted and integrated mobile solutions to their websites. We collected data about the friendliness of selected websites using automated online tools and carried out a heuristic evaluation. The results were statistically analyzed and compared. Only roughly half of natural health resorts have optimized their websites for mobile devices. There are no statistically significant differences when comparing purely technical aspects. However, an in-depth heuristic evaluation has shown that some web sites are significantly more mobile-friendly than others and offer better technical conditions for enhanced user experience. Our study is the first technical and contentual evaluation of website mobile devices' friendliness in the natural health resort sector. It warns management, their marketing consultants, and web site developers about the opportunities they are missing by not supporting mobile users sufficiently. Further, it outlines deficiencies and provides suggestions and instructions for optimizing websites to enhance user-friendliness on mobile devices.
Keywords: mobile technology, mobile device, mobile Internet, health tourism, spa, natural health resort, web page, evaluation, heuristics

Mobile learning usage and preferences of vocational secondary school students : the cases of Austria, the Czech Republic, and Germany
Antun Biloš, Davorin Turkalj, Ivan Kelić, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to determine the current status of mobile device usage and mobile learning adoption in vocational education and training (VET) secondary schools in three European Union countries (Austria, the Czech Republic, and Germany). The research focused on exploring students’ mobile device usage habits, their attitudes toward education in the context of mobile application support, and preferences regarding mobile learning features. The research confirmed a high level of mobile device usage among secondary school students on a daily basis; smartphones and laptops were the most commonly used devices. The vast majority of participants perceived themselves to be advanced mobile device users, but reported a deficit of ICT-assisted mobile learning experience. However, the majority of respondents with prior ICT-assisted education experience described it as a positive or very positive experience. In addition, study participants tended to agree that mobile learning will play a significant role in education in the future. The paper also explored the reported differences among the students in the three countries and suggested several implications for understanding students’ views of mobile learning. The findings provide insights into possibilities of m-learning implementation while creating a framework for m-learning application development in the VET secondary school environment.
Keywords: mobile learning, secondary school education, online teaching, student mobile device usage, m-learning, mobile teaching

Indoor mapping and navigation using geographic information systems
Goran Sekirarski, 2016, bachelor thesis/paper

Abstract: This study present proposal work with prototypes that use Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) and NFC technology for indoor navigation using mobile device with help by using geographic information system to create geotagged maps to building in this diploma thesis. The study used an experimental approach with open source software and hardware engineering tools and technologies which minimized cost. A preliminary experiment with RFID and NFC tools helped to understand the compatibility of certain RFID infrastructure with NFC and helped to determine if and how NFC could be used. The capability of NFC in leveraging its low-cost infrastructure of passive tags, its embedment in mobile devices and the ubiquity of the mobile device provided a cost effective solution with good accuracy.
Keywords: Geographic information system, CAD, RFID, Wi-Fi, Near Field Communication, indoor navigation, indoor positioning, NFC Internal, mobile device
