Are We Ready for m-Learning? From 238 undergraduate students at Texas Tech in April, 2011
Are We Ready for m-Learning? Intention to use m-learning: 5.11 out of 7
Are We Ready for m-Learning? What do you want to do with your mobile devices in your coursework? Accessing course information (e.g., schedulers, exam results) Communicating with teachers Discussing about course content with other students Accessing course contents (e.g., reading materials or multimedia resources) Collaborating on course projects with other students Taking a test or exam
What is m-learning? Mobile learning is considered a new and more flexible educational strategy where students have opportunities to review course content or communicate with their peers and instructors “anywhere,” “anytime” without the restrictions of fixed-location computer technology (Caudill, 2007). Mobile learning is more than just learning delivered and supported by handheld and mobile technologies. It is learning that is both formal and informal, context aware, and authentic for the learner(Traxler, 2005, 2007, 2010).
