Literature Review into Mobile Learning in the University Context

Cobcroft, Rachel S. (2006) Literature Review into Mobile Learning in the University Context. (Unpublished)



This document represents an extensive survey of the existent literature surrounding the fast-growing field of mobile learning or ‘m-learning’. In referencing over 400 recent publications, encompassing conference papers, reports, reviews, and research projects, it presents an indication of the ‘state of play’ in this emerging discipline. Undertaken during December 2005 and January 2006, the literature review’s primary purpose has been to provide the basis for an academic book on the area: a ‘what to’ guide considering contemporary changes to learner behaviours, institutional directions, technological developments, and realistic visions for exploiting seamlessly-embedded mobile learning.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
