As the distance education started more and more proliferating, it had to make more and more use of information communication technology (ICT). This is true from 3rd generation of distance education onwards. Thus the wedlock of distance education and ICT has been already endorsed and is universally accepted. While speaking on the options in ICT there have been discussions on possible usage of mobile learning (M-learning) as a step ahead of e-learning. If one looks into the comparative figures of users of Internet and mobile, it can be understood that mobile could be the best possible media for communicating quick and small chunks of information to the learners. This paper discusses the possible implications of mobile as a media in various operational activities like pre- admission information, admission process, exams, and results, any change of subject, study centers, etc. Technological innovation and advancements have brought about massive societal change. In comparison, technology’s impact on education, teaching and learning has been rather limited. M-learning the latest technological innovation of our times.
