    • Mobile Phone Potential
    Mobile phones have the potential to be used as part and parcel of students’ learning for their “technologies are familiar, personal , universal, non-intrusive, lightweight and cheap , to be woven into every waking moment, among a myriad of other activities and in all manner of social settings and groups” Traxler (2008, pg18)

    • Mobile Learning Activities

    • Students’ Blog Posts
    • The need for introductory workshop:
    • As I reflect being a university student, I actually have experienced MLearning all this while without realizing it has got its own term! When I wanted to buy the current N70 phone, I had requested my phone to be installed with PDF reader and Word reader so that I could read PDF and Word files in my phone (IY)
    • I did mlearning before, when I didn't even know what mlearning is. That was when I had my brother's IPhone to bring along wherever I go. I installed Wikipedia and even stored Assessment notes in the phone. Why? Because the lecturer likes to test us whenever he likes and I want to be ready if he asks. Does that help me? Yes, a great deal. (LCWY)

    • Students’ Blog Posts
    • Students are willing to try out the tools or applications but cost is a big issue
    • As for my small-tiny-mini NOKIA 6288, I once use recorder to record my ugly voice and listen to it over and over again to remember certain facts well. (exam time?) (ALCK)
    • I have tried Facebook Mobile in my handphone and I loved it! With this, it is like having your laptop in your handphone (AAR)
    • I’ve tried a gps software, just for trial, and my dear lord, it has credited like 14buck to my bill and fyi, I just use it to navigate me from pantai dalam to cheras and the route is less than 10km. (SAA)

    • Students’ Blog Posts
    • The need for virtual assistance
    • Last 3 years I just found that handphone can made video call and also send e-mail but I rarely use it. Maybe most of the people out there as same as me. (MFNA)
    • I hardly explore my hp other than calling people, sms-ing, listening to songs, taking pictures, setting reminders and alarm. I never go online, never. But after the lesson (mlearning workshop) I was tempted to do so. And I did and I felt ‘WOW” please do not ask why I felt so, but I just felt ‘WOW’. (TN)
  • 17.
    • Recommendation
    • Mobile learning concept will need to be introduced first
    • A virtual technical forum for students to get to know their mobile phones better needs to be created.
    • Mlearning activities that are predicted to be well-received are those that minimize web-based connection time.. The students’ preferences were for SMS type of activities (organization tools eg schedule alerts) and capturing of video and pictures, . eBook , podcast.
