When the United States thinks about developing an 'iPhone University', developing economies envision a 'Mobile University'. Technology in Education has rippled from Distance-learning to e-Learning and now to m-Learning. Going forward into the 21st Century, emerging markets are witnessing a substantial rise in the use of hand-held mobile devices. Convergence of Mobile Technology and Education, therefore, is a potential breakthrough in the art of Teaching and Learning. This thesis aims to extend the concept of ‘Virtual Communities’ in the web space to build ‘Mobile Communities’ in the mobile space. The author proposes Mobile Teaching Community (MTC) model that streamlines the basic steps in designing an application that can simulate Mobile Campus and University. The focus is on education in the field of Public Health Care and Medicine in India. However, such a Mobile Teaching Community model can also be used as the prototype for building mobile communities in various areas including education, banking, trading, mass communication and commercialization.
