Mobile Learning Anytime, Anywhere

BioScience Volume 60, Number 9, ISSN 0006-3568


Some educational institutions are taking the leap to mobile learning (m-learning) by giving out free iPods. For example, Abilene Christian University gave iPods or iPhones to freshman students and developed 15 Web applications specifically for the mobile devices. The iPod is not the only ubiquitous m-learning device. Any technology that connects to wireless or mobile phone networks can be used. M-learning should be familiar territory in many ways. Educators have already discovered the value of e-learning, which has extended education beyond the classroom. And institutions that offer distance education courseware have acquired the technological know-how of connectivity and digital content distribution. Most people are comfortable using digital or Web-based resources to support learning, and many teachers and instructors are skilled at creating modules for custom learning. M-learning takes what one already knows to the next level. The potential of m-learning is growing and its new resources continue to be developed.
