In the information age, learning has become ubiquitous, and mobile learning enabled by mobile technologies is expected to play a significant role in various educational settings. Currently, there exist some limitations on mobile learning from the perspective of technology. The implementation of mobile learning usually depends on the development of applications. In this paper, a whole different and flexible model is proposed, in which the development of applications is replaced by the direct utilization of WeChat. That is, we use WeChat instead of developing a new application to integrate with Moodle to provide students a mobile learning environment. After three years in practice, students become more inclined to log into Moodle directly via WeChat with the evolution of the mobile learning environment. And over a half of surveyed students think the mobile learning environment useful. [For full proceedings, see ED571459.]
