The Opinions of Information Technology Students on Using Mobile Learning
International Conference on Educational Sciences (ICES),
The advances in information and communication technologies in present day are moving the education into a different dimension. Especially, it is not wrong to say that the mobile phones are taking a very important part of our everyday life. The interest in mobile phones is growing day by day and individuals from age 7 to 70 are interested in such devices. People not only follow the advances in mobile phone technology, but they purchase new phones and use their advanced features. As a result of this, we see that educational establishments are including mobile phones in their daily teaching activities. The acceleration of scientific studies in this area is increasing every day. Based on this point, this study has been carried out at the Near East University (by information technology students) in order to find out the opinions of students on mobile learning. A survey was carried out in order to find out the student opinions, and also a literature study was done such that it could perform the basis of this study. The survey consisted of questions and was prepared carefully with the aim to find out the opinions of students on the effects of mobile learning. The results of the survey were analyzed and tabulated using the SPSS packet program. Based on the results of this analysis, positive suggestions are made on the opinions and recommendations of students on the effective use of mobile learning tools. In addition, recommendations are made on how the students can follow the recent advances closely in information technology and also in the right time. (Contains 9 tables and 3 figures.)
