Mobile learning has been introduced for quite some time now at Taif University. However, there is no research conducted to measure the readiness of mobile learning within its context. As such, the aim of this study is to assess the lecturers' readiness for mobile learning in higher education in terms of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use. A total of 140 lecturers were collected from the faculty of education using online survey. A five-point Likert scale that demonstrated degrees of agreement (from strongly disagree to strongly agree) was applied to capture the lecturers' perceptions on their readiness for mobile learning. The instrument validity was conducted using factor analysis. A multiple regression model demonstrated that all predictors accounted for 60.9% of the variation. The findings showed that perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness are the valid predictors of assessing lecturers' readiness for mobile learning in higher education. Therefore, it was concluded that perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use have a significant impact on readiness for mobile learning.
