Abstract

The infrastructure and awareness of mobile learning has been the focus of research in higher education for a while now. This study examined the impact mobile learning has on undergraduate students’ academic success. Qualitative data was collected through interviews. The results show that mobile learning does have some impact on undergraduate students’ academic success and that they would continue to use them in their school related practices. Conclusion: Future research should be conducted with a big number of respondents to ensure the representative and conclusive finding.
