Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous in university settings. While online learning using desktop and laptop device has seen significant growth over the last decade, the next decade will see an increased use of online learning via mobile devices such as tablets and phones. However, the spread of mobile learning in universities is patchy, and thought needs to be given to approaches that will foster widespread uptake. In this paper, we highlight the potential for mobile learning (ML) in higher education (HE) and the ways in which professional development (PD) can be enacted to develop guidelines for mobile learning and embed practices across an institution.
