The increased usage of mobile devices for learning purposes raises
several concerns regarding how this adaptation aects learning and perceived
quality of educational content across dierent screen resolutions. This research
looks into how educational content type and video adaptation aect the per-
ceived quality of multimedia educational content on two dierent mobile de-
vices. We consider seven dierent categories of educational content: slideshow,
screencast, presentation, lab demo, interview, documentary, and animation.
The results show that the participants could learn regardless of the video
content type and the adapted version of the video. We found no statistical sig-
nicant dierence between the perceived quality of the highest quality video
and the lower quality video for two of the categories (lab demo and interview)
and statistical signicant dierence on the remaining ones. The implications
of this study are also discussed.
