Extensive Internet use together with the use of mobile technology, especially the cell phone, has created new opportunities for the migrating of these technologies into the educational domain; if only to provide more meaning and diverse ways of communicating, collaborating, sharing and presenting educational content to learners with the principal objective of improving the way learners learn.
