Bee motif


As with the Open Educational Resources infoKit, when JISC infoNet came to finalising a design for the Mobile Learning infoKit, we needed a motif. A seemingly-obvious choice would be to use images of mobile phones and other mobile devices but this would remove the focus from the mobility of the learner.


After seeking opinions via Twitter and a thread on Quora the front-runners were birds and bees. We chose the latter because of their obviously-collaborative nature and the links with the social element of mobile learning. We'd like to thank those who suggested ideas, as well as those photographers who kindly shared their wonderful images under a Creative Commons license.
