CLAIMS

1. A method of providing instructional content on a mobile device, the method comprising:
providing a list of instructional topics from which a user may select at least one instractional topic (502, 504); and
executing at least one step based on the at least one instructional topic selected by the user (506 - 518), wherein the at least one step is designed to assist the user to accomplish a particular task using the mobile device by substantially requiring the successful completion of at least one action that is necessary to complete the task.

2. The method of claim 1 wherein the list of instructional topics is provided to the user using a user interface device selected from a group consisting of a display, a speaker, and combinations thereof.

3. The method of claim 1 wherein providing the list of instractional topics comprises generating the list of instractional topics based on a mobile device parameter selected from a group consisting of user input, content displayed on the mobile device, menus selected by the user, programs running on the mobile device, instructional topics stored on the mobile device, and combinations thereof.

4. The method of claim 1 wherein the at least one instractional topic is stored on the mobile device.

5. The method of claim 4 further comprising updating the at least one instructional topic stored on the mobile device using a remote server.

6. The method of claim 1 wherein the at least one instractional topic selected by the user is stored on a remote server.

7. The method of claim 1 wherein providing the list of instructional topics comprises generating the list of instractional topics based on the instructional topics stored on a remote server.

8. The method of claim 1 wherein executing at least one step based on the at least one instractional topic selected by the user comprises notifying the user when the at least one action is not completed successfully.

9. The method of claim 1 wherein the at least one action comprises:
prompting the user for input;
receiving a notification that an event has occurred;
comparing the event received to an exit reason;
receiving event data when the event received corresponds to the exit reason;
comparing the event data to an exit value; and
completing the at least one action when the event data substantially corresponds to the exit value.

10. Apparatus for providing instractional content, the apparatus comprising:
means for providing a list of instructional topics from which a user may select at least one instructional topic (102, 108, 824, 916); and
means for executing at least one step based on the at least one instructional topic selected by the user

(102, 108, 824, 916), wherein the at least one step is designed to assist the user to accomplish a particular task using the apparatus by substantially requiring the successful completion of at least one action that is necessary to complete the task.

11. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the list of instractional topics is provided to the user using a user interface device selected from a group consisting of a display, a speaker, and combinations thereof.

12. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the means for providing the list of instructional topics comprises means for generating the list of instractional topics based on an apparatus parameter selected from a group consisting of user input, content displayed on the apparatus, menus selected by the user, programs running on the apparatus, instructional topics stored on the apparatus, and combinations thereof.

13. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the at least one instructional topic is stored on the apparatus.

14. The apparatus of claim 13 further comprising means for updating the at least one instructional topic stored on the apparatus using a remote server.

15. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the at least one instructional topic selected by the user is stored on a remote server.

16. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the means for providing the list of instructional topics comprises means for generating the list of instructional topics based on the instractional topics stored on a remote server.

17. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein executing at least one step based on the at least one instructional topic selected by the user comprises means for notifying the user when the at least one action is not completed successfully.

18. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the at least one instructional topic comprises an instractional topic file containing data selected from a group consisting of a file version, a unique identifier, an instractional topic version, a language, a starting event, a title, a title speech, a number of steps, step content, and combinations thereof.

19. The apparatus of claim 10 wherein the at least one action comprises:
prompting the user for input;
receiving a notification that an event has occurred;
comparing the event received to an exit reason;
receiving event data when the event received corresponds to the exit reason;
comparing the event data to an exit value; and
completing the at least one action when the event data substantially corresponds to the exit value.

20. A server for providing instructional content to a mobile device, the server comprising:
a data repository (910, 914) operable to store instractional topics; and
a network interface (920, 922) operable to communicate with the mobile device to provide the instructional topics to the mobile device, wherein the mobile device comprises:
a user interface (812, 814, 816, 818) operable to receive user input and provide information; and
a processing platform (806, 820, 822) operably connected to the user interface operable, through the use of instructions, to enable a user to select at least one instractional topic from the instractional topics, and executing at least one step based on the at least one instractional topic selected by the user, wherein the at least one step is designed to assist the user to accomplish a particular task using the mobile device by substantially requiring the successful completion of at least one action that is neces- sary to complete the task.
