The aim of this paper is to present the design of a project that involves deployment of computerized vocational training courses comprised of multimedia enhanced video lectures, virtual reality games and low cost haptic device based simulations built on mobile-learning platforms and delivered using automobile units. These mobile vocational education units are developed as a model to make vocational education and training more accessible to the rural and tribal populations of India. The paper gives an overview of the design of the mobile vocational education units and details the architecture and communication interface for the m-learning application. It further describes the software architecture of the vocational education application that is specifically designed to easily scale across various vocational trades and languages of delivery, provide flexibility and increase accessibility for vocational training. © 2012 IEEE.
