Abstract—Software development education requires students
to be engaged in realistic software projects, which are
increasingly developed in geographically distributed teams.
Therefore, we started to include distance learning based
projects into our software development courses. Combining
distance learning and mobile technologies opens possibilities for
new teaching methods, facilitating personalized, informal,
situated, contextualized and ubiquitous learning. In this paper,
we introduce a novel course module design, gradually
increasing mobile distance learning activities. It leverages
different teaching methods, including elements from
Just-in-Time Teaching, project-based learning and peer
Index Terms—Distance learning, just-in-time teaching, mobile learning, software development education.
