Abstract

Mobile (M)-learning is motivating to learners to improve foreign language skills, as it offers a rich, informal, contextual, and ubiquitous learning environment. We report on the results of a study that focused on two surveys and determining if a blended-learning environment incorporating m-learning can help improve the English listening, presentation, and blogging skills of native Japanese undergraduate students at a private university in Tokyo, Japan. The blended-learning activities included three components: "iUniv" lectures, digital storytelling, and student blog activities. Pre-training and post-training CASEC scores revealed that the students adequately comprehended the iUniv lecture contents and their overall listening skills improved. Questionnaire feedback revealed the students were satisfied with and motivated by their exposure to the blended learning environment using m-learning.
