Abstract


The present state of mobile learning in Jordan is investigated in order to provide a meaningful direction for the future development of university eEducation in Jordan. The strengths of mobile learning are elaborated and its current status including challenging issues from the perspective of cognitive learning is addressed. An online survey was conducted to investigate the expectations and perceptions of mobile learning amongst university students and professors in Jordan and a number of countries in the Middle East. Various factors that may contribute to the establishment of mobile learning in educational institutions were investigated and expectations concerning the impact of mobile technologies on teaching and learning were explored. The results reflect on the fundamental needs for effective implementation of mobile learning from the view of cognitive science, instead of technological evolution.
