Abstract

Among the sectors in which mobile phones have become very vital are banking, health management and education. In education, for example, as Houser, Thornton and Kluge (2002) have noted, mobile learning (i.e. learning with mobile devices) will extend what web-based learning delivered namely study beyond physical classrooms towards anywhere; anytime learning. Mobile devices are generally very small and hence portable making them very user friendly. This paper presents an initiative on mobile learning implemented at the Aga Khan University, Institute for Educational Development in East Africa. The details of the program are presented in the following sections.
