Students revising for test using SMS
MetadataShow full metadata
In this paper an experiment involving mLearning using Short Message Service (SMS) is described. The experiment was designed after a study of the readiness of the participants in terms of mobile device ownership, mobile technology preferences, and learning styles. Qualitative data was gathered and analysed using an activity theory framework. The SMS scenario developed for the experiment is contentspecific and was provided as a commercial service in ‘pull’ mode. The study allowed to conclude that mobility support, information density, and information relevance were the factors which contribute most to creating mLearning value while cost was a major detractor.
