With the application of PBL to m-learning, this study aims to discuss the digitalized learning with mobile devices. Through the interaction of group intelligence among peers, learners could establish individual knowledge and skills in the process of problem solving. With the convenience of mobile devices, learners could complete learning without the restrictions of time and location outside the classroom. In this case, the application of PBL to m-learning allows learners to discuss problems with the team on the community page as well as to receive more effective problem-solving methods with digitalized materials to assist in teaching and learning. The problem-based learning could motivate the students who are tired of learning and enhance their comprehension and achievement, as the learner-centered strategy could build critical thinking and reasoning techniques, promote the creation and independence, as well as assist learners in receiving achievement in the learning process.
