Abstract

This paper is the result of collaboration between a company involved in mobile media and an academic institution. It outlines some of the driving forces behind learning using mobile technologies, or mobile learning (m-learning) as it is known. The progression of mobile media from current entertainment services to future learning services is outlined. Trends in mobile technology and their impact on m-learning are discussed, as are the m-learning media used for mass-market devices and advanced devices. The process of developing an m-learning application for what is currently the most advanced 3G mobile phone is presented. The application has been short-listed in a worldwide competition for advanced 3G mobile applications by a major network provider. Some conclusions are discussed and some future research work is outlined.
