Abstract

Educational institutions are becoming involved in adopting technological innovations like th e mobile learning (m-Learning) platform for education. Mobile technologies are the next frontier as infrast ructure for m-Learning because they can provide high-quality learning capab ilities to satisfy the rising student demand for mobility and flexibility due to the ubiquitous nature of mobile tec hnology (smartphones) and the va st opportunities it offers, there ar e indications that smartphones could lead the next generation for learning platforms. Researchers have examin ed the idea from several angles and produced a copious amount of literature devoted to explaining the interrelationships of technology and learning. I n this research we aim to offer a view of students’ perspectives, giving a systema tic examination of m-Learning adoption that can be used as a framework for furt her research into the success of m-Learning. We found that making learning m ore interesting, increasing productivity, and providing internet ac cess had the greatest effect on student’s perceptions.
