Abstract

As mobile phones become popular, with many people being able to afford them, the demand for mobility is extended to teaching and learning purposes. One recent and significant change in learning environments is the demand for mobility. We introduce a proposed framework of mobile learning. It consists of four functional levels: (1) mobile learning applications, (2) mobile user infrastructure, (3) mobile protocol and (4) mobile network infrastructure. The framework can simplify the design and development so that different parties (e.g. vendors, service providers, designers, developers) can address individual levels. A single party can build on functionalities provided by others. The functions of these four levels are described with some examples. Moreover, practical knowledge management and learning community are two major issues in mobile learning.
