The term M-Learning, or “mobile learning”, has different meanings for different communities. Although related to e-Learning and distance learning education, it is distinct in its focus on learning across contexts and learning with mobile. One definition of mobile learning is:
Any sort of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location, or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies.
In other words mobile learning decreases limitation of learning location with the mobility of general portable devices.
The term covers: learning with portable technologies including but not limited to handheld computers, MP3 Players notebooks and mobile phones. M-learning focuses on the mobility of the learner, interacting with portable technologies, and learning that reflects a focus on how society and its institutions can accommodate and support an increasingly mobile population.
