MOTILL, which stands for “Mobile Technologies in Lifelong Learning: best practices”, is funded by the European Commission within the National Lifelong Learning Strategies (NLLS) – Transversal programme – Key Activity1: Policy Cooperation and Innovation of the Lifelong Learning Programme 2007-2013.

The key concepts in MOTILL are Lifelong Learning and Mobile Technologies. The MOTILL project investigates how these technologies may impact on the diffusion of a social model where learning and knowledge are accessible to all, regardless of social and economic background, age, gender, religion, ethnicity or disability.

MOTILL project outcomes include the Scientific Annotated Review Database (SARD) - a repository that brings together projects, key experiences and scholarly studies concerning lifelong learning experiences based on mobile technologies. The SARD collects these experiences providing a brief summary and a review done by the experts participating in the MOTILL project. The database can be accessed via the MOTILL portal -

The database contains reviews of journal articles (55%), conference papers (24%), reports (12%), book chapters (8%) and a book.

The project has also released the Best Practices Collection (BPC) - this contains some of the most relevant lifelong learning mobile experiences from each partner country. The 11 projects were examined from the different perspectives defined in the MOTILL Evaluation Grid - Management, Pedagogy, Policy and Ethical Considerations. The Evaluation Grid was conceived as a tool that would enable MOTILL project partners to work in a consistent manner to identify best practices in the use of mobile technologies for lifelong learning, whilst taking national and local contexts into consideration.

The Best Practices collection can be accessed online ( and it can also be downloaded in its entirety as a PDF from the MOTILL website's dissemination/publications section.
