Abstract     
Mobile learning (m-learning) has started to play a vital role in Africa. It should be noted that m-learning has brought e-learning to the rural communities of Africa – to learners who we never imagined as e-learning learners only a few years ago. M-learning is the gateway to e-learning for most learners in Africa as the rapidly growing wireless infrastructure increasingly fulfils their access needs. Africa is actually leap-frogging from an unwired, nonexistent e-learning infrastructure to a wireless e-learning infrastructure. The statistics in this regard are already significant proof of this process. This chapter provides examples of m-learning projects in rural Africa and the successful use of basic technologies (basic and cheap mobile phones that can only do {SMS} and voice communication) to enhance learning and learning support.
