Abstract

Owing to the advantages of mobile devices, many organizations have applied them as flexible learning tools However, there are some limitations, such as the cost of hardware or the need for a reliable Internet connection This article presents the findings of a systematic review of research articles on the limitations of mobile learning published between 2008 and 2017 A qualitative content analysis was used to identify and categorize challenges in the use of mobile devices in learning, not only in educational institutions but also in other types of organizations The review indicated that problems in mobile learning primarily had to do with device or network characteristics, but also with the readiness of learners and instructors to adopt new technologies, the cost of hardware and software, and trustworthiness of content
