Mobile technologies are a future in e-learning technologies. The paper presents the details of
using mobile devices and wireless technologies that could be used for m-learning in education and
training. Mobile devices can have more processing power, slicker displays, and more interesting
applications than were commonly available on desktop machines ten years ago, and educators
are quickly realizing their potential to be used as powerful learning tools. However, the application
of mobile technologies to learning contexts must take into account a number of factors. Above all
other things, we must consider how mobile learning can be used to provide learners with better
opportunities and enhanced learning outcomes. This paper is concerned about the problems of
using mobile devices and wireless technologies, a differentiation between learning and technology
as the driver for mobile learning approaches and than the classification of mobile learning
activities. M-learning is the exciting art of using mobile technologies to enhance the learning
experience. Mobile phones, PDAs, Pocket PCs and the Internet can be blended to engage and
motivate learners, any time and anywhere.
Handheld devices are emerging as one of the most promising technologies for supporting learning
and particularly collaborative learning scenarios; mainly because they offer new opportunities
for individuals who require mobile computer solutions that other devices cannot provide. The highly
personalized nature of digital mobile devices provides an excellent platform for the development
of personalized, learner-centric educational experiences. In paper is emphasized the importance
of considering learning over technology, and suggest a pedagogically based framework for developing
learner-centric m-learning. The evolution in education and training at a distance can be
characterized as a move from distance learning to e-learning and m-learning (mobile learning).
