Learning Enhancement in Tertiary Institutions Using Mobile Technologies

CI Ugwu

Abstract


The educational standard in tertiary institutions has witnessed a down turn in the area of teaching and learning. This paper links this down fall to traditional face-to-face educational model that is still by far the dominant mode of education and learning in tertiary institutions. In addition to identifying some of the ways in which traditional learning has hampered learning, the paper proposes the enhancement of learning through the use of mobile technologies. This paper presents M-learning architecture and further examines how mobile technologies could be utilized by lecturers and students to enhance student’s learning experience. The paper also showcased the graphic user interface of a developed mobile learning system.

Keywords: educational standard, tertiary institutions, M-learning architecture, mobile technologies.
