Abstract     
"Mobile learning through the use of wireless mobile technology allows anyone to access information and learning materials from anywhere and at anytime.
As a result, learners have control of when they want to learn and from which location they want to learn. Also, all humans have the right to access learning materials and information to improve their quality of life regardless of where they live, their status, and their culture. Mobile learning, through the use of mobile technology, will allow citizens of the world to access learning materials and information from anywhere and at anytime. Learners will not have to wait for a certain time to learn or go to a certain place to learn. With mobile learning, learners will be empowered since they can learn whenever and wherever they want. Also, learners do not have to learn what is prescribed to them. They can use the wireless mobile technology for formal and informal learning where they can access additional and personalized learning materials from the Internet or from the host organization. Workers on the job can use the mobile technology to access training materials and information when they need it for just-in-time training. Just-in-time learning encourages high level learning since learners access and apply the information right away rather than learn the information and then apply the information at a later time. Educators and trainers are empowered since they can use the mobile technology to communicate with learners from anywhere and at anytime. At the same time, educators and trainers can access learning resources from anytime and anywhere to plan and deliver their lessons.
This book is timely since there is significant growth in the use of mobile technology by people around the world, especially in developing countries. As the citizens of the world use mobile technology to complete everyday tasks and to socialize with friends and colleagues, they will demand access to learning materials using mobile technology. Also, other sectors of society such as business, are allowing citizens around the world to use mobile technology to complete everyday transactions. Hence, education and training have no other choice but to deliver learning materials on mobile devices.
The research studies and projects in this book show how mobile learning can transform the delivery of education and training. (...)
