In the interest of the advancement of mobile technology and their increasing affordability and wide capability, mobile devices particularly Android platforms have transformed from a means of communication to tools for socialization, entertainment, and learning. It has greatly changed the functioning of the world, even the learning process. Learning through mobile phones or Mobile Learning has become part of the educative process. Mobile Learning or M-Learning is a type of e-learning that delivers educational contents and learning support materials through wireless communication devices.
The purpose of this study is to assess the readiness and perceptions of faculty members and college students in the use of mobile devices for learning inside and outside the classroom. This will also determine the respondents’ prior knowledge on the personal and educational use and application of mobile phones. Finally, it will identify the respondents’ perception on the effectiveness of mobile devices as used in the teaching-learning process.
