Research on Mobile Learning in Adult Education


The purpose of this study is to review empirical-based research on using mobile devices for adult education in the context of teaching, learning, and training from 2005 to present. The intent is to provide researchers with a resource highlighting what has been done and what gaps exist for mobile learning research. A total of 103 refereed data-based journal articles were reviewed. The findings are discussed and new research directions are identified.
