Mobile Learning


Definition: Mobile learning, or m-learning, refers to a subset of e-learning, educational technology, and distance education that focuses on learning across contexts and learning with mobile devices. With the use of mobile devices, learners can learn anywhere and at any time. M-learning technologies include handheld computers, MP3 players, notebooks, mobile phones and tablets. M-learning focuses on the mobility of the learner, interacting with portable technologies, and learning that reflects a focus on how society and its institutions can accommodate and support an increasingly mobile population. M-learning, like other forms of e-learning, is also collaborative. Sharing is almost instantaneous among everyone using the same content, which leads to the reception of instant feedback and tips. M-learning also brings strong portability by replacing books and notes with small RAMs, filled with tailored learning contents. (Wikipedia,
