Abstract

M-learning through mobile phones can make use of the learning management system that is already available through internet. Where the internet accessibility is limited, mobile phones can also facilitate the learning process on off line mode through micro SD card. Without restrictions in the hands, the students can access the learning resources any where in the world where the internet is available. The University launched the M-learning project on pilot basis for its vocational teachers training programme namely Diploma in Pre-Primary Teachers’ Education (DPTTE). A survey was conducted among the students to investigate the mobile learning benefits and to analyze the students’ perception on mobile learning. Under the project the structured questionnaire was circulated among the enrolled students to examine their attitude and self efficacy about the M-learning. // The study shows that almost all the students enrolled in this particular course use mobile phones for social purposes and majority of these mobile phone have numerous features like pictures, video, games, instant messaging and internet. Even some low-end mobile phones have these features that enable them to be used in education, research, reading etc. // Paper ID 25
