Abstract

In this article the approach adopted for the design of m-learning tools and infrastructure is predicated on the idea that there will be intermittent wireless connectivity with limited bandwidth (e.g., grainy video at best). Students in Hong Kong (like most places) lead busy lives, and access to always-on Internet connections may not be possible or desired. Instead, the concept of flexibility of learning—learning at a time most suitable to the student—is seen as a primary driving factor for our work. What follows is a description of a framework for development of learning tools and institutional infrastructure designed to take advantage mobile devices and the flexibility offered by m-learning.
