The purpose of this article is to investigate the four main issues that arise during the use of mobile technologies and devices in the learning environment. The key issues addressed in this paper are: 1) What type of mobile technologies do Korean college students use the most in their learning? 2) What mobile benefits would they like the most to consider as compared to other media and technologies? 3) What problems or difficulties do exist in the current application of mobile technologies? 4) What possibilities will be helpful in the application of mobile technologies in the higher educational settings in Korea? The 506 Korean college students from three junior colleges and twelve four-year universities located in Seoul, Korea participated in the survey. The survey results suggest some guidelines for mobile technologies to be used in helping students learn in higher educational settings.
