Abstract

[aBSTRACT]: The advent of mobile devices has provided a new direction to the current models of e-learning. While current models warrant students to access educational resources using a desktop computer with Internet technology, mobile devices extend the concept to directing educational resources to students' devices and added a new dimension of 'anyhow', realizing mobility. This research looks at the tertiary students view point to understand how mobile technology can be utilized in an effective and efficient manner in order to realize educational strategies. Students' opinions were extracted using a focus group discussion and the preliminary results are reported in this paper.
