Abstract

Problem statement: A great deal of excitement has recently propelled Mobile Learning to the forefront of educational technology. The exponential growth of mobile technology in the recent years, increase in the availability of high-bandwidth network, advances in wireless technologies and popularity of handheld devices, have opened up new accessibility opportunities for education. Approach: Virtual class room using MANET had been proposed to enhance the m-Learning opportunities in a residential institution. Results: This environment transferred both large and small volume of data to the particular group members. Generally multicasting supports group oriented computing. Such a group oriented service required a suitable multicast routing protocol. Two standard multicast routing protocols were implemented and analyzed for tree (MAODV) and mesh (ODMRP) based approach. The performances of group learning module of VCR had been analyzed using MAODV and ODMRP routing protocols for parameters such as network traffic, the node speed and the network area. Conclusion/Recommendations: Our results showed that many scenarios in VCR environment, MAODV achieved a higher packet delivery ratio than ODMRP.
