Today there is no lack of mediums to attain education. Students have various methods to complete their education and learn anything via various methods. Online education has given students so many options that the statement- “due to lack of resources education can’t be completed”, has become a joke. Among so many mediums, m-learning or mobile learning is a form of distance education which can be accessed 24×7 from anywhere from mobiles devices like android phones & tablets. Its meaning has a dual way to understand. First this is a type of learning which can be done from anywhere and anytime and second is this learning is performed by such devices which can be carried easily and study can be performed through them easily. A student can open his mobile and tablet anywhere because they are easy to carry and via online or through flash drives the student can study whatever he wants. People never leave home without a mobile, hence such a device which is so essential for humans. With the help of mobile learning accessibility is no longer a difficult task. A student can continue his studies even after school or college and he has no dependability on libraries because mobile learning has provided a 24×7 library to the student with unlimited resources to provide information related to any field.

Now why a student will choose m-learning first among so many other easy ways to study. Let’s understand in following point:

  • As it is mentioned in the beginning of this article that most of the time owners of mobiles always keep their mobiles with them. That means they carry a medium or tool of learning all the time with them. They have freedom to attend their studies anytime & anywhere.
  • Mobile learning is a medium where most of the time learners can gain proper feedback for their performance which is quite rare other than this medium. Learners also need motivation to move forward and that comes due to feedback and m-learning provides it in an ample amount.
  • If we talk about students then it is obvious that two students can’t be the same in the matter of intelligence hence their grasping power will also be different. A teacher can’t teach each and every student accordingly but students can find study material according to their grasping capability through m-learning in an easy way.
  • M-learning provides ample amount of career opportunities to the students who want to earn while studying, like captcha typing, content writing & data entry. These jobs can be done via mobiles also wherever you are sitting, that hardly matters.

Through m-learning a student gets rid of traditional methods of learning i.e., by shuffling the pages and searching any content for hours. Here first of all he will not have to spend any time searching for content, just put whatever you want to search in the search bar and in a jiffy, content will be in front of eyes. M-learning has taught students that if they have zeal to learn then m-learning can provide knowledge anywhere just they need to muster the courage.
