Students can read their course materials on their smartphones even while in bed, rather than have to go to the computer labs on the campus before having access to the materials.
Lecturers can make use of the audio recording feature built into most smartphones to provide these personal and yet quality feedback to all students.
Rather than have students write a 2000 word essay after researching on a topic, where several of them would simply copy and paste paragraphs without necessarily understanding the content, lecturers could ask students to research and create a 5 minutes or less video or audio recording of what they had researched about.
Lecturers can exploit the group chat features of mobile devices to create an online discussion forum to encourage class participation on content topics, even outside the classroom.
The powerful features of the mobile technology should be creatively used to make our work effective and to achieve high results.
Lecturers must not simply add technology to make learning efficient, they must plan for the creative use of these technologies in the classroom.
