Abstract

Mobile learning (mL) has been a most intriguing innovation in the field of learning technologies. Various research projects have been carried out to evaluate efficient mL. This paper identifies the feasibility of implementing mL in the educational system in Malaysia, as a developing country, with the curriculum focus of English language learning. The challenges facing developing countries are considered and the cost benefits as well as learner benefits are discussed. Finally, the challenges in the context of Malaysia are identified, including, enhancing the teachers’ and students’ perceptions and attitudes towards mL, student’s and teacher’s training, monitoring the implementation, maintaining the devices and finding sufficient amount of funding.
