STUDENT BEST PRACTICES 2
Introduction
Considering the global transformation in education system, a large number of new
methodologies and techniques have emerged which are being implemented to enhance learning
outcomes in the students. The shift from traditional mere lecture-based classrooms to recent
mobile based learning has provided teachers and students to learn in a much better way that it
was done previously (Filho et al., 2018). This essay discusses one of the latest trend, i.e., mobile
based learning, which has emerged in the last few years and has increased quality of learning
among students.
Mobile based Learning
The students today are digital innate or natives as they are largely under influence of
modern information technological and smart devices (such as laptops, smartphones) and internet.
Therefore, the education system has gradually transformed and enabled students to learn more
from smart devices, particularly smartphones. Different researches have been published in this
area to find out the extent of influence of using mobile learning/ digital learning/ internet
learning or information technology based learning on student outcomes. In particular, this trend
has gained wider acceptance due to its significance of usage during recent pandemic of COVID-
19 which has led to the closure of educational institutions besides industries/ organizations for
several months.
Priscila (2020) defines mobile based learning as “mobile learning, also known as M-
learning, is a new way to access learning content using mobile devices. It’s possible to learn
whenever and wherever you want, as long as you have a modern mobile device connected to the
Internet” (Priscila, 2020). This approach used by education providers in which learning is done
through several contexts, i.e., personal electronic devices, and content and social interactions.

Dakir, et al (2020) provides mobile based learning or seamless learning allows enables to
conduct learning activities without any space and time limitation. Though, this approach is
classified worthy for most learners and education providers/ institutions; however, the support
for implementation is weak and require improvement.
Golshah et al (2020) states that the growing importance of smart-phone based mobile
learning using smart phones has transformed the traditional lecture-based learning as it provides
better efficacy. This is because mobile-based learning allows students to remain connected with
their smart phones to quickly and easily access course information while interacting with the
content which separates the existing barrier between real life and learning. In addition to this, the
use of smart-phones helps to promote collaborate besides extending the learning environment to
construct greater knowledge. This is especially important in orthodontic education for which
Golshah et al. (2020) provides that use of videos and 3D images while educating students have
resulted in more efficient and easier learning of the orthodontic topics.
There are several aspects that need to be considered while designing a mobile-based
learning applications such as cost of deployment, system efficiency, intuitive operation, system
compatibility, medium familiarization, ease of use, flexibility, ease of access and human
interaction factors (i.e., willingness to use, user acceptance and sociability). In this aspect, the
research by Imania et al. (2020) supports that flow of information, accessibility, and participation
of learners, etc., must be largely considered while designing a successful mobile-based learning
applications so that interested parties could access it anytime and from anywhere. Moreover, the
researchers added that creativity and increased interactivity are important elements that must be
largely involved so that positive stimuli could be generated among users.

Conclusion
In a nutshell, it could be concluded that mobile based learning has been largely accepted
in recent times, therefore, it is important for eductaion providers/ institutions to impelemnet these
practices for the provision of efficient learning in students.

The authors have conducted a primary research/ quantitative analysis to analyze the
mobile based learning at PGMI Nurul Jadid University. Their research revealed that
use of mobile devices for the purpose of learning has scored highest for the useful
category which supports that information technology devices such as laptops, cell phones
and PDAs have increased the quality of learning among students.
