The paper presents a mobile frontend for the Opencast audio and video project. Opencast Matterhorn is a community driven collaboration to develop an end-to-end, open source solution that supports the scheduling, capture, management, encoding and delivery of educational audio and video content. The presented application has been developed in the context of the Opencast initiative. It can be used on all major mobile platforms and leverages Opencast Matterhorn’s navigation and analysis features for accessing audio and video based learning material created by universities worldwide. Users can easily switch content repositories, watch multi stream videos, harvest fine grained lecture recordings from running Matterhorn instances or use the information provided by the framework for advanced multimedia navigation possibilities on modern mobile devices. The development and end user experience decisions for the presented application applies lessons learned from previous m-learning activities and survey results from the university with extern and intern students.
