Mobile Learning, Adaptive of Mobile Learning, Mobile-learning Model.
Mobile learning is a good technology because it allows communication, collaboration, and sharing information or resources among all of learning members. Mobile learning can be used as perfect solutions to support the learning process. Thither are many concepts and factors influencing effective learning results through creativity, collaboration, and communication. However, culture is an unaccounted factor which should be appended to the existing M-learning model. Culture may improve the learning outcomes of students. We would like to research on how to design an effective model by integrating culture to maximize the benefits of mobile learning.
