The eLearning world has rapidly moved into a world of mobile everything. Media is delivered on devices that fit into the palm of a hand. People make calls and read emails on their phones, they communicate by texting, and they watch streaming video. They also have lessons on their mobile devices, but is this an entirely good thing?

This session will explore the research and outcomes of using mobile devices with small screens for eLearning.
