Abstract

Learning through mobile devices such as PDAs, mobile phones, laptops with wireless capabilities, today is integrated within education systems to deliver electronic contents and to support real-time communications. It is used as a tool to engage learners in collaborative, communicative, constructive and supportive activities. It is unique in ensuring ubiquity and mobility in learning without time, place and technical limitations. In the research literature, a number of successful m-learning systems are reviewed. Still there is lack of research about efficiency, effectiveness and usability of mobile learning systems. In this paper, we discuss the usability of a learning environment and propose a strategy how to implement a successful usable m-learning environment. MobileView is mobile application developed as a prototype for testing purposes as well as for developing a strategy for designing a usable m-learning environment.
