Abstract

Mobile technology is growing throughout the world, especially in Brazil, where it has reached 142% of the population since 2015. Smartphones have been used every day in all areas of personal, professional and free time activities, and there has been an increase in the use for learning purposes. This technology has a huge potential because its costs are decreasing, even considering remote data access, and lots of applications are becoming available, offering possibilities to improve education, especially in less favorable places in developing countries. The objective of the present study was to test if existing e-learning solutions could be localized to enable mobile learning in Brazil. Additionally, to develop a mobile learning taxonomy defining the criteria for localizing mobile learning in global education to design it to different situations and cultures.
