Abstract

When considering m-learning in the international arena, the definition of m-learning takes on broader meaning. Developed countries have advantages such as infrastructure, connectivity, and technology that make m-learning readily available. In developing countries, cost, connectivity, availability of mobile devices, bandwidth, and technology-transfer restrictions become major issues. All can be overcome if a few adjustments in curriculum development and delivery method are made. Local culture, needs, and resources must be considered, language barriers can be overcome, and cost can be mediated.
