Abstract

Mobile technologies have rapidly grown over the past decade and have become ubiquitous in all sectors of education. This scenario has enabled mobile learning to grow – providing learners with more mobility to learn anywhere, anytime in a connected learning environment. Together with this growth, research in this field has expanded worldwide. This growth has also impacted Malaysia – with the upward trend of mobile learning research conducted by Malaysian researchers and educators. To illustrate the history of this research trend, the chapter reviews mobile learning research in Malaysia in four research waves: (1) the emergence of mobile learning research (year 2003–2006), (2) mobile learning early research (2007–2010), (3) growth of mobile learning research (2010–2013) and (4) mobile learning research extension (2014–2016). The chapter ends with implications and future directions for Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific for educators and researchers interested in the field of mobile learning in Malaysia and its potential application in the Asia-Pacific context.
