Mobile learning is an evolution of e-learning. It seems like it is ‘the next step’. The interesting thing about m-learning is that it’s a whole new world – filled with opportunities.
e-learning is targeted at one domain whereas m-leaning is ubiquitous. It is all about the performance support than it is about the courses. The most interesting part of m-learning is the challenge – how with just a small screen size all the information can be supplied.
A number of mobile devices are supporting the m-learning trends, thus opening up m-learning to a much wider audience. You don’t walk around with a laptop everyday but you carry your mobile and that brings up a whole lot of opportunities for learning on a mobile device.
