Subject(s):Mobile system

Abstract:This paper reports the results of 15 in-depth interviews with university students in the Greater Boston area regarding their mobile learning experiences, including the kinds of learning activities performed, and the advantages and challenges of m-learning. Mobile devices were used mainly for initial exploratory learning or a way for quick access and interacting with classmates. Participants avoided using mobile devices for complicated tasks or deep learning. The limited usability of mobile devices in supporting advanced learning is alarming. A conceptual framework of m-learning containing dimensions of mobility and ubiquity, convenience, interaction and collaboration, and usability was presented.
