mLearning: an innovative conceptualization to expand Education for everyone, anytime, everywhere

Lakshman Dissanayake
Leeds Metropolitan University, UK


Abstract
This paper conceptualizes how mLearning methodology can be used to provide high quality education for those who are unable to be present regularly in educational institution due to various reasons. The innovative approach to mLearning methodology proposed here is unique because this method has incorporated everything that a student will expect from an educational institution about his education and also what a teacher expects from his students. In addition, this method also has integrated all the elements that any educational institution provides for its community. Therefore, the mLearning method proposed here is different to all other mLearning versions available at present in the world since this method satisfies the needs of all the communities that are engaged in an educational institution. It can also be treated as a hybrid system which incorporates not only the available technologies but also all other social activities related to any educational institution.
