The notion of ubiquitous learning is one that poses both opportunity and challenge to Australian higher education institutions, staff, and students. Pervasive technology ownership, reliable broadband networks, changing students' expectations, and government policy arc all fuelling a push toward more ubiquitous learning. While the notion of 'anyhow, anywhere, anytime', learning can be seen to have obvious attractions and benefits for learners, it also creates obvious challenges for higher education providers. In most cases, institutions arc ill-prepared for the level of flexibility required to provide and support ubiquitous learning. Appropriate infrastructure can be lacking, and staff and students demonstrate considerable diversity in their digital literacy. This chapter explores the opportunities and challenges of ubiquitous learning in the Australian context.
