Abstract

Mobile learning changes the learning environment, learning trends and types of learning. For some implementation of mobile learning will implies both advantages and consequences. Implementing mobile learning into pedagogical activity is not easy as it seems. The main objective of this exploratory study is to investigate the factors of using mobile learning among undergraduate students in local university in Malaysia. A survey questionnaire was conducted involving 302 undergraduate students from a non-IT faculty at a local university in November 2015 to gather qualitative data from open-ended questions. The method involves using inductive reasoning as a “bottom up” approach. The analysis of this study also provides the qualitative analysis result from students’ respondent on the factors that drive students to use mobile learning. It is found that there are seven factors highlighted by the respondents for using mobile learning. The factors are (i) ease of use, (ii) new technology usage, (iii) mobility, (iv) university encouragement, (v) improve quality of life, (vi) save cost and time and (vii) easy access.
