The purpose of the paper is to present the main results of the Leonardo da Vinci project for Transfer of Innovation entitled “Mobile learning methodology for European trainers and VET systems quality improvement” (Global SRS), co-financed by the European Commission. The Student Response System (SRS) for mobile devices is an online service that provides a just-in-time training, learning and evaluation methodology, supported by the most recent mobile technology. The Global SRS project has designed a European module for the SRS based “training of trainers”, supported on the learning outcomes. It aimed the valorisation of a training of trainer's module focused on open and mobile learning/teaching tools. The ECVET tolls are introduced within the project activities, towards the development of a common framework based on EQF and ECVET principles. The piloting evaluation results in the three partner countries: Portugal, Sweden and Romania are presented. There has been an overall positive response from the trainers as well as the students to the use of SRS. The more valorised aspect concerning using SRS in training is the promotion of active participation and learning.

2) Mobile learning: tendencies and lines of research

As mobile technologies have gained presence in all social groups, the interest for their applications in the educational field has grown steadily. The present article proposes an exploration of the concept of mobile learning with the intention of describing the possibilities of this methodology and establishing its development tendencies.
