- Adoption of Mobile eLearning (MEL): experience of polyethnic students in Singapore
- Ho, Henry Wai Leong; Ali, Shameem
- The adoption of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Tertiary Institutions in Singapore is well advanced, and modern teaching and learning practices with a high level of ICT use are being successfully integrated with elements of the traditional on-campus lectures and tutorials. This study focuses on on-campus students enrolled in an undergraduate marketing subject in one of the largest Polytechnics in Singapore, where Mobile eLearning Technology (MeL) has been in operation for about seven years. The purpose of this study is to ascertain the value adding aspects of elearning technology and to understand if learning is facilitated or enhanced by the use of such technology. In the transition phases between the more traditional learning environments and the mobile learning environments, it is important to assess the views of students because they have experience of both environments. This study is an attempt to understand how the technology is being used and if there are difficulties with technology adaptation and its capacity for learning facilitation. The findings indicate that students were positive about the transition from traditional learning environments to Mobile e-Learning environments.
