Mobile Learning in Saudi Arabia – A Review
The aim of this paper is to review the available research studies on the mobile learning in Saudi Arabia. Mobile learning, or m-learning, is a rapidly growing phenomenon across the world and Saudi Arabia is also a participant in this growth. This paper aims to review some of the research studies which have been carried out on the mobile learning in Saudi Arabia. For this paper, specific search terms were used in the Google Scholar search engine and the results were shortlisted according to the year of publication. From the review of the available studies on the subject, it was clear that even though Saudi Arabia may not be at the same pace as the developed nations when it comes to m-learning, the phenomenon is becoming popular in the country and the government is also taking steps to aid it along. Part of the development is also due to the ubiquity of mobile phones amongst the younger generation.
