Mobile learning (or m-learning) is defined by Clark Quinn as " the intersection of mobile computing and e-learning: accessible resources wherever you are, strong search capabilities, rich interaction, powerful support for effective learning, and performance-based assessment.  It is e-learning independent of location in time or space." in the book: Designing M-Learning by Clark N Quinn.

M-learning has the potential to deliver different types of learning experience ranging from full-fledged courses to byte size learning modules. It can facilitate instant communication and collaboration, conduct surveys and assessments. As a follow-up for training activities, it can provide access to performance support tools and relevant knowledge bytes at the most appropriate moment.
