Sethy, Satya
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v20 n1 p83-95 Jan 2011
In the techno-driven world, mobile learning is an indispensable element of teaching-learning activities. It helps distance learners in many ways by providing their required facilities. The paper discusses about these facilities in an eclectic and summary manner. Thus, by implication, it is popularized among distance learners across the globe. Further, it discusses the reasons why learners tempt to go for mobile learning? How it helps them in their study skills and enhancement of their cognitive skills which they badly require in their learning activities? A critical analysis of these issues is followed by a crucial discussion. That is, whether it is possible to sustain quality assurance in mobile learning? The paper concludes with an assertive view that mobile learning is a smart choice of distance learners in the Open and Distance Learning system. (Contains 1 figure.)
