In this qualitative study, faculty members' perceptions of the integration, affordances, and challenges of mobile learning (m-learning) were investigated through semi-structured interviews. The results showed that participants' integration of m-learning varies and tends to focus on select activities. At the same time, participants recognized m-learning as a valuable learning approach with potential to enrich the teaching and learning process and enhance flexibility. A lack of knowledge and skills, deficiencies in training and supports, problems with Internet connection, a digital divide among students, learning disruption, and a lack of awareness about the utility of m-learning were identified challenges that hinder current integration of m-learning.
