In a higher education context, mobile learning is not really mobile if it does not allow the learner to participate in real-time formal academic activities outside of the lecture rooms. Existing studies dwell more on either using mobile learning outside of traditional university academic activities in a context of its own or as a learning support to facilitate self directed learning or collaborative learning outside of the classroom. Some studies have also considered learning in informal settings with others examining its use in providing formal but flexible learning. Stretching this ubiquitous model of learning into the existing traditional formal learning arrangements offers both unique and extensive opportunities for students and the relevant higher education institutions to achieve real-time mobility. This paper attempts to (a) push our understanding and application of 'mobile learning' beyond current borders of application in HEIs, (b) extend a framework of mobile learning application in HEIs. The application of this kind of mobile learning will enable more options for the teaming number of students looking for more flexible and yet effective and efficient options for participating in HE learning.(original abstract)
