Focus and Scope

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.

Thus, this book will bring together a wide range of scenarios, solutions and discussions relating to mobile learning for development. The cases will be set in a variety of adult learning contexts including business and corporate, higher education, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Previously identified authors from different countries and educational settings will be invited to submit authentic cases that will represent different problems and solutions from a global perspective, including but not restricted to the following:
Mobile lifelong learning in pedagogy;
Mobile learning in a formal setting, e.g., educational institutions;
Mobile learning in an informal setting;
Mobile learning in developing contexts;
Tools and technologies for mobile learning;
The use of social software for mobile learning;
User studies of mobile learning;
Research in mobile learning.
