Abstract:This paper introduces a new smartphone interface that allows students to access existing scenario-based learning activities on the SBLi™ platform (www.sblinteractive.org). Leveraging student-owned technology for academic benefit, the SBLi™ smartphone interface offers high impact, anywhere anytime, active learning opportunities. Given a choice, about a third of students accessed the scenario-based learning activities via mobile devices. We found no differences in student attainment of learning outcomes based on summative assessment between the desktop SBLi™ version and SBLi™ mobile version. However, most students owning smartphones do not use it for mobile learning, yet many welcome scenario-based mobile learning applications. Ease of usage and navigability of mobile learning applications are vital.
