Mobile learning (variously shortened to M-Learning, M-learning, m-learning, mlearning, M Learning, or mLearning!) describes any form of education or training that is delivered using some kind of mobile device. As the power and sophistication of mobile devices increases, and wireless networks become faster and more ubiquitous, learning with a mobile device will become an integral part of the general spectrum of technology-supported learning. Furthermore, the special characteristics of mobile learning, including ubiquity, convenience, localization, and personalization, give it unique qualities that help it stand out from other forms of learning.
