Now, learn through your mobile phones
Barkha Shah / Hyderabad August 09, 2006
Learning has just acquired a new – nimbler – form. While e-learning is still being used as a supplementary tool to the conventional forms of learning, a new method of knowledge addition called m-learning has emerged in the global scenario.
M-learning or mobile learning refers to the deployment of training programmes on wireless handheld devices, like cell phones and personal digital assistants.
Not many in India would have heard of the m-learning concept, as it requires the use of advanced phones with 3G technology or BlackBerry devices.

It seems the developing world is embracing m-learning at a far greater pace than the US and other 'technological' countries. I attribute this to the fact that not everyone is 'wired', so mobile phones have exploded as the primary communications device.
