This chapter examines research on mobile learning, its impact in higher education, and the technologies being used as mobile learning devices. Mobile learning includes devices that have the capability to be site and/or job specific, such that learners can access content immediately regardless of their location. Mobile learning is being successfully employed in many higher education classrooms throughout the world, as it enables new methods of learning and for redefining learner interactions. New teaching methods may now be possible that allow for exchange and creation of information in novel learning contexts. Social and organizational issues of mobile learning are analyzed and presented.
