Electronic Reading and Digital Library Technologies: Understanding Learner Expectation and Usage Intent for Mobile Learning
Hyman, Jack A.; Moser, Mary T.; Segala, Laura N.
Educational Technology Research and Development, v62 n1 p35-52 Feb 2014
Mobile information technology is changing the education landscape by offering learners the opportunity to engage in asynchronous, ubiquitous instruction. While there is a proliferation of mobile content management systems being developed for the mobile Web and stand-alone mobile applications, few studies have addressed learner expectations and usage intent in consuming digital documents from online content providers and digital libraries with specific emphasis on formal instruction. Understanding usage intent and actual usage of a mobile learning agent as a result of ease of use and usefulness of mobile devices will be addressed in this study. A research framework for instructional technology usage is proposed to help better articulate critical success factors in implementing formal learning using a mobile device, specifically an electronic reader or a tablet computer.
