Mobile Technology: Implications of Its Application on Learning
Adeyemo, Samuel Adesola; Adedoja, Gloria Olusola; Adelore, Omobola
Open Praxis, v5 n3 p249-254 Jul-Sep 2013
Learning in Nigeria is considered to have taken a new dimension as the Distance Learning Centre (DLC) of the University of Ibadan has created wider access to learning through the application of mobile technology to learning with particular reference to mobile phones use for the teaching and learning process. By this, the Centre seeks to achieve one of the major objectives of the Nigerian National Policy on Education, which is the provision of equal educational opportunities to all citizens at different levels of education. The paper therefore presents the attendant challenges of introducing such an innovative idea to learning at the University of Ibadan using a sampled population of 201 in a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) held among learners under the Distance Learning platform to establish the benefits and problems of using mobile phones for learning in the University of Ibadan.
