    • BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD)Social networking platforms such as Facebook is becoming pervasive in educationBYOD models can provide more flexible learning environment than any current restricted iPad systems.
    • BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD)Facebook app via a mobile device can be integratedVirtual and mobile Community Based Learning (CBL) that can be flexible efficient, instant and on demand.
    • The Devices itself is only the platform featured phones or tablets for different platforms i.e (Android iOS etc.)
    • OPERATING SYSTEMS
    • APPLICATIONS (APPS):Are created via the application frameworks, i.e. camera, game, Facebook app etc..etc..
    • SURVEY AND RESULTSA questionnaire conducted on second year university students studying e-business courses and Computer Science courses at the Information Technology Department in (2012)The questionnaire covered questions mobile phone ownership, accessibility, use FB mobile app & the possibility to use FB app to access learning content/form study groups
    • RESULTS!• All students (N=70) who completed the questionnaire own a mobile phone, Blackberry (50), iPhone (11), Samsung (5) Nokia (4).
    • RESULTS!100% of students have free access to WiFi when on campus (N=70).100% of students have Facebook app installed on their mobile phone (N=70).100% of students are keen to bring their own mobile phone to class and use it (N=70)80% of students have WiFi at home when away from campus (N=56)10% of students only use their mobile phone for educational purposes (N= 7)85% of students think that using Facebook mobile app to form study groups is a good idea (N= 59)50% of students think it would be useful to be able to access learning materials from their mobile(N=35)
    • CONCLUSION!The results clearly show that students are happy to bring their ownmobile phone to the classroom and use Facebook app foreducational purpose. But some would argue that this will create adigital divide amongst students (as some students may have thelatest device while others may have not).But as teachers we have to create an appropriate environment forour students in order for them to learn.
