Medical Education Simplified in The Zeitgeist of Digital Era

Our Story

The Mobile Learning Unit (MLU) was established in 2017 by the Melbourne Medical School to support the university academics to create and deliver portable and flexible professional development courses. The unit is led by Professor Alistair Royse and Professor Colin Royse who are co-directors of eLearning Technology, Melbourne Medical School as well as the Mobile Learning Unit and the Ultrasound Education Group (UEG). Both are passionate about e-learning and have more than 14 years of experience in developing and evolving mobile learning solutions to health care professionals.

The Mobile Learning Unit provides health care professionals with the flexibility to engage and upskill anywhere and anytime. Education is portable with courses accessible across multiple platforms, including tablets and mobile phones, and structured to optimise the learning experience. Content is divided into a series of small blocks, which layer to form a tutorial, building knowledge in stages. A learning unit can be completed in a matter of minutes and users are in complete control of their learning pace. Courses can be progressed or suspended, when necessary, to balance learning with other commitments.

“The evolution to mobile learning means learning on the go, and the most likely device you will use is your phone, which means the nature of people’s learning is changing too”- Alistair said.

Mission Statement

The Mobile Learning Unit provides health care professionals with the flexibility to engage and upskill ubiquitously. Making education portable, accessible across multiple platforms; structured yet simplified to enhance the learning experience.
