Abstract

This paper focuses on using m-learning to teach university students. Three pilot studies were carried out to identify the limitations of mobile learning. First pilot study investigated the effect that screen-size has on student's subjective opinion. Second pilot study investigated the effect that screen-size has on text-based, audio-based and video-based m-learning. Third pilot study reports on an empirical investigation that studied the effect that screen-size has on video-based m-learning. The results suggest that screen sizes typical of a PDA device may facilitate more effective learning, in comparison to screen sizes typical of a mobile telephone. The implications of this finding and future work for the design of m-learning environments are discussed.
