Abstract:Increasing demands for highly interactive quality, which would strengthen learning experiences, impose soaring challenges to traditional education providers. Learning applications and technologies via mobile devices have thus been appropriated to meet these demands and requirements, coupling with the wide penetration of mobile telephones in the last decade. However, the proposed learning activities or experiences with mobile phones have been much questioned about they can actually enhance the way that is being currently interacted between students and teachers inside a classroom or beyond. This paper empirically investigates this issue. Three experiments carried out in this paper revealed that the mobility is the crucial benefit, which allows one to justify the common benefit of mobile learning regardless of the subtleties of learning environments.
