Reviews & Statements

"Innovative Mobile Learning: Techniques and Technologies argues that a holistic approach for encompassing diverse mobile learning themes is necessary to design new kinds of learning activities with mobile technologies, where there is still a lack of well-defined characteristics and features of mobile learning spaces. "

– Hokyoung Ryu, Massey University, Auckland, New Zealand.

This collection of research articles, of interest to both academics and educational practitioners, surveys mobile learning research and projects and discusses the latest mobile learning environments beyond the desktoplearning environment.

– Book News Inc. (February 2009)

This edited volume is a comprehensive treatment of theories, issues, methods, advances, and challenges associated ith the emerging array of electronic resources for learning that go well beyond desktop computers.

– The American Journal of Distance Education (2009)

As m-learning is getting increasingly popular, this book is timely and would be a useful guide for selecting appropriate tools, methods and technologies for designing learning experiences. It would help educationalists, academics, administrators of educational institutions, researchers and even those from the corporate world who may desire to initiate or strengthen the practices of teaching and training with mobile technologies.
