As governments try to provide higher education to people previously without access, they require flexible delivery methods to enable students to learn from anywhere and at anytime. Online education provides the methodology but problems of convenient access still remained until mobile technology arose to the challenge. This technology coupled with online distance education allows students to use readily available devices to learn without attending campus. Thus, whilst studying, they can continue working or staying at home to care for their family members. And the government doesn't have the expense of providing extra buildings for these additional students accessing by distance education. This book brings together a wide range of scenarios, solutions and discussions relating to mobile learning for development. The cases are set in a variety of adult learning contexts including business and corporate, higher education, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
