Physical separation of learner-instructor and learner-learner makes motivation difficult to achieve in e-Learning. The lack of motivation in e-Learning has been observed, resulting in high learner drop-out rates. To address the issue of learner’s motivation in e-Learning, mobile technologies have been suggested in literature, and based on experiments, to have the ability to make learning more widely available and accessible than other devices in existing e-Learning environments. At present, there is a dearth of scarce research-based evidence on the use of mobile technology as a complement to the existing e-learning system to enhance online learner’s motivation. The main purpose of this study is to propose a new approach in simulating and maintaining learner’s motivation, which is appropriate for learning activities (interactions) in e-Learning settings through the use of mobile technologies. Mobile communication tool will be used in encouraging interaction among the learners and instructors, and in improving learners’ motivation to engage them in online learning.
