AbstractIn this paper, the educative possibilities of Java midlets, which are small applications that can be stored in a mobile phone, are explored in several courses in the Actuarial Sciences degree of the University of Málaga. This project is carried out by a multidisciplinary group of teachers who have been developing learning resources in electronic format during the last six years. We follow a flexible blended strategy that includes the traditional classroom, e-learning and m-learning elements. Thus, the students can customize their learning processes using the contents and the way of access they are more comfortable with or consider more effective.
