AbstractThis paper about m-learning reports the development and evaluation of an application for the teaching and learning of human anatomy. Twenty-six first term students of the Physical Education and of the Dance Studies courses (2015) took part in this action research, comprised by five stages. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of data were performed using the Students t test and the Bardin model, respectively. The results showed that students were greatly interested and receptive to use m-learning strategies in their academic life. Comparison of pre- and post-test scores indicates a significant increase in correct answers. The subjective evaluation of the application showed its success, since students perceived the contributions of the development, use, and evaluation stages. The hosting service used in the application development was appropriate in terms of the objectives of this research.
