    • Definition
    • Features
    • Advantages
    • Limitation/challenges
    • Technology to support/deliver M-learning
    • Using M – Learning
    • Examples
    Outline:
  • 3.
    • Learning that happens across locations, or that takes advantage of learning opportunities offered by portable technologies
    • Technologists place a high emphasis on novelty and the functionality of the devices (phones, PDAs, iPods, PSPs) themselves.
    Defention:
  • 4.
    • Enables knowledge building by learners in different contexts. 
    • Enables learners to construct understandings. 
    • M-learning is convenient, in the sense that it is accessible virtually from anywhere (class, taxi, laundry room, …) 
    • Mobile technology often changes the pattern of learning/work activity.
    Features:
  • 5.
    • M-learning is collaborative; that is sharing is almost instantly among everyone using the same content, which will in turn also lead to receiving instant feedback and tips. That will be the best kind of learning.
    • M-learning is engaging and fun. With this kind of learning, it is much easier to combine gaming and learning for a more effective and entertaining experience
    Features:
  • 6.
    • Interaction: Student interaction with instructors and among each other.
    • Portability : PDAs are lighter than books and enable the student to take notes or input data directly into the device regardless of location either typed, handwritten or using voice.
    • Collaborative : Enables several students work together on assignments even while at distant locations.
    Advantages:
  • 7.
    • Engaging learners: The new generation likes mobile devices such as PDAs, phones and games devices.
    • Increase motivation: Owner ship of the handheld devices seems to increase commitment to using and learning from it.
    • Just-in-time learning : Increases work/learning performance and relevance to the learner.
    • autonomy: Mobile learning provide the student  more autonomy and flexibility especially in distance education.   
    Advantages:
  • 8.
    • Technical challenges:
    • Small Screen size
    • Small key size
    • Limited Performance, in terms of processor capability, available memory, storage space and battery life.
    • Slow Connectivity of the internet
    • Multiple standards, multiple screen sizes, multiple operating systems
    • Repurposing existing e-Learning materials for mobile platforms
    • Left- to-right scrolling, web sites too big to see effectively on small screen
    • Risk of theft, rain, mud, breakability, and so on
    Limitation/challenges:
  • 9.
    • Social and educational challenges:
    • Accessibility
    • How to assess learning on mobile phone
    • Developing an appropriate theory of learning for the mobile age
    • Tracking of results and proper use of this information
    • No demographic boundary
    • Mobile communication is still expensive – especially from abroad
    Limitation/challenges:
  • 10.
    • SMS: Short Message Service allows users to send/receive messages of up to 160 characters between mobile phones (text messaging).
    • MMS : Multimedia Messaging Service serves the same purpose as SMS but allows the inclusion of graphics .
    • WAP : An international protocol that allows users to access the internet via their WAP enabled mobile phones.
    • CAMs: Video cameras now embedded into mobile phone and PDAs.
    Technology to support/deliver M-learning:
  • 11.
    • Buetooth : A short range wireless conneciton. This enables PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) to pass messages to and from other mobile devices.
    • PDAs : Personal Digital Assistants have evolved to mini PCs able to carry out many of the basic functions of a larger PC using the Palm OS or MS Pocket PC operating system.
    • MP3s: Audio file format that efficiently compresses files and enables them to be shared.
    Technology to support/deliver M-learning:
  • 12.
    • In collaborative projects and fieldwork.
    • As a classroom alternative to books or computers.
    • Where learners are widely dispersed
    • To engage with learners who in the past have felt excluded
    • In promotional and awareness campaigns
    • For ‘just-in-time’ employee training. 
    Using M - Learning:
  • 13.
    • To get some example of M-learning activities and applications, please go to  this link and found many courses desiring for m-learning:
