AbstractThe purpose of this study is to compare the development platforms for mobile learning applications. Mobile learning is definedas a learning which takes place via mobile technologies, enables accessing educational contents without a spatial restriction anddynamically benefiting from produced services and communicate with others, and which increases the productivity and workperformance of users by instantly responding to their individual needs. According to another definition, mobile learning takesplace in various contexts through contents and social interactions using personal electronic devices. In addition to the increase inthe use of mobile devices, the fact that the number of those who download and use mobile applications increases every day hasraised the interest in the development of mobile applications for learning. This study offers various suggestions relating to theadvantages and disadvantages presented by platforms based on various variables. Also including some application examples, itis believed that the study will guide to those researchers and application developers who want to design mobile learning projects
Bu çalışmanın amacı, mobil öğrenme uygulamalarına yönelik geliştirme platformlarının karşılaştırılmasıdır. Mobil öğrenme, belirli bir yere bağlı olmadan eğitim içeriğine erişebilmeyi, dinamik olarak üretilen hizmetlerden yararlanmayı ve başkalarıyla iletişimde bulunmayı sağlayan, kullanıcının bireysel olarak gereksinimine anında cevap vererek üretkenliğini ve iş performans verimliliğini artıran ve mobil teknolojiler aracılığıyla gerçekleşen öğrenme olarak tanımlanmaktadır. Diğer bir tanıma göre mobil öğrenme, kişisel elektronik cihazlar kullanarak, içerik ve sosyal etkileşimler aracılığıyla çeşitli bağlamlarda gerçekleşen öğrenmedir. Mobil cihazların kullanımındaki artışın yanı sıra, mobil uygulamaları indiren ve kullanan bireylerin sayısının her geçen gün artması, öğrenme amacıyla mobil uygulama geliştirmeye yönelik ilgiyi artırmıştır. Bu çalışmada geliştirme platformlarının çeşitli değişkenler açısından sunduğu avantajlar ve dezavantajlara ilişkin öneriler sunulacaktır. Örnek uygulamalara da yer verilen bu çalışmanın mobil öğrenme projesi geliştirmek isteyen araştırmacılara ve uygulayıcılara yol gösterici nitelik taşıyacağı düşünülmektedir.

Mobile Usage at the Base of the Pyramid : Research Findings from Kenya and South AfricaWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2014-04-07)While the growth of mobile
communications in developing countries has been phenomenal,
using mobile phones and applications to meet human and
economic development goals is not widespread, for they have
not proven acceptable or desirable to the locality into
which they are introduced. Therefore, it is deduced that
technical know-how and entrepreneurial acumen must be
complemented by sociocultural understanding. InfoDev's
Mobile Use at the Base of the Pyramid program seeks to
contribute to this agenda through on-the-ground studies in
developing markets. The first phase of this program
supported both qualitative and quantitative research on
mobile usage by low-income populations in Kenya and South
Africa. This report documents the findings of this program.
Managing mobile learning in a higher education environment / Olivier V.Olivier, Vanessa (North-West University, 2012-09-10)The aim of this study is to conduct a thorough theoretical study on mobile learning (mlearning) in order to achieve the primary objective of the study which is to develop a general framework to implement and manage mobile technologies in a higher education environment. The focus of the literature study was to research the state of mobile technologies and their relevance to teaching and learning. The literature study investigate the implications of mobile technologies for students, lecturers and thus for the institution and provided an overview of frameworks found in literature with the emphasis on the management of m–learning within the higher education institution. M–learning is part of a new mobile conception of society, with the mobility of the technologies impacting on the mobility of the students, the lecturers and ultimately on the mobility of higher education. Literature suggests that, while m–learning is proving to be innovative, the factors that most strongly impact on the ultimate success or failure of mlearning will depend on human factors, the balancing of technological ideals and pedagogical imperatives, and the successful management of the interface between human educational systems and technology systems. The proposed general framework focuses on addressing key issues related to m–learning from the perspective of the student, the lecturer and thus the institution. In order to remain competitive higher education needs to be diligent in maintaining the complex technology infrastructure that supports a thriving mobile culture that will meet and exceed the expectations of both lecturers and students. The empirical research conducted had as objectives to investigate the mobile technology assets of respondents with regard to the hardware and the software that they own, the mobile technology actions of respondents in regard to what they do with the mobile technology that they own and to investigate the respondent's attitude towards mobile technologies. A survey was designed and distributed to a sampling of the academic staff and students of the North–West University (NWU) in South Africa, specifically the Potchefstroom Campus. There is ample proof from the empirical study that there is a gap with regard to the level of accessibility, usage, and attitude with regards to the different interest groups in the higher education environment. Higher education institutions should invest in investigating these gaps further and in leveraging off the benefits of the effective management of these technologies to improve teaching and learning. The final chapter concludes with a summary of the secondary objectives researched in the literature (Chapter two) and empirical research (Chapter three) chapters in order to support recommendations towards the primary objective of this study. The rapid pace of adoption and advancement of mobile technologies creates opportunities for new and innovative services provided through such mobile devices. Higher education finds itself in the early innings of the mobile Internet pulling both lecturers and students towards the same place: smaller, faster, cheaper devices working together in a web of connectivity. Recommendations were made in this final chapter on how higher education institutions can leverage the benefits of the effective management of mobile technologies to improve teaching and learning. M–learning has the potential to increase the capacity of higher education through improving efficiency and productivity of teaching and learning. Mlearning could address challenges related to quality of teaching such as continuous professional training, lifelong upgrading, connecting with academics worldwide and communicating effectively with students. Higher education is discovering the potential of mlearning to promote student engagement and improving the quality of learning. Management of higher education institutions and systems, management of policymaking including storage and analysis of data, construction and assessment of policy scenarios, and tracer studies or academic tracking systems can be improved through the use of m–learning. Mobile technologies will continue to increasingly become an integral part of students' and lecturers' private and day to day lives and m–learning will be integral in educational content delivery. Additional research is required to study the effective and optimal implementation of m–learning. A better understanding of the benefits and leverage thereof is required and additional research should provide answers to these questions.
