– In this article, we discuss weaknesses inherent in mobile phone learning, and factors that limit its viability.
In this article, we discuss weaknesses inherent in mobile phone learning, and factors that limit its viability. (We do not discuss other m-learning devices such as PDAs.) We conclude that, while e-learning has met with some acceptance among educators and is increasingly being implemented, it will be necessary to solve the problems that we discuss before m-learning can become effective, accepted and widely used. Educators who are interested in using mobile phones for learning with their students should be aware of the current limitations.
