    9. 9. Why Do We need mLearning
    10. 10. PDAs in Education <ul><li>“ Our team carried out a detailed study of how radiology is taught and practised. One clear finding was that trainees have very little spare time. They can’t take the time to sit in libraries or computer labs, and so any computer- based learning must fit into the gaps in their busy schedule - in the hospital, at home, when travelling - which means a personal and portable system.” (Sharples, 2000) ‏ </li></ul><ul><li>The immediate readiness for use has been highlighted by users in other studies, a typical student comment being a PDA is something that is “unobtrusive and neat and that could always be ready at hand” (Waycott et al., 2002) ‏ </li></ul>
