dc.description.abstractThe use of mobile learning (m-learning) to deliver course content and/or learning activities, is a relatively new instructional design strategy, currently gaining momentum in postsecondary and distance education institutions. Because this strategy is new, relatively little data has been collected regarding student: use of mobile technologies, comfort level with mobile technology tools and features, and mobile technology tool preferences. This study reports on a survey of 294undergraduate and post-graduate psychology students involved in e-learning, to discover which mobile technologies they use and prefer. An online survey gathered data on student use of mobile technologies, usage rates and experiences, preferred format for learning materials, and willingness to participate in m-learning activities. Findings indicate that the most utilized mobile technologies were cell phones, laptops and MP3 players, respectively. Findings are of interest to distance educators and course designers interested in exploring m-learning applicationsen
