What is mobile learning?
- The intersection of mobile computing and e-learning: accessible resources wherever you are, strong search capabilities, rich interaction, powerful support for effective learning, and performance-based assessment. eLearning independent of location in time or space.(Quinn, 2000, para. 5)
- The “exploitation of ubiquitous handheld hardware, wireless networking and mobile telephony to enhance and extend the reach of teaching and learning.”(Mobile Learning Network [MoLeNet], 2009)
- “Any form of learning that happens when mediated through a mobile device.”(Herrington et al., 2009)
- Mobile learning is more than just learning delivered and supported by handheld and mobile technologies. It is learning that is both formal and informal, context aware, and authentic for the learner.(Traxler, 2005, 2007, 2010)
