Over the past few decades, the development of electronic learning (e-learning) and its use of Learning Management Systems (LMSs) have changed teaching and learning in traditional K-12 and postsecondary institutions. E-learning has advanced teaching and learning methods significantly; however, a relatively new delivery method, mobile learning (m-learning), is emerging and receiving extensive attention from public and private sectors. It is providing even greater access and flexibility than e-learning, including enabling students in rural areas and developing countries to seek educational options. It is the intention of this literature review paper to answer the following questions: What is m-learning and how is it used? Who is using m-learning? How is m-learning changing the face of education in terms of access, cost, learning outcomes, and educational delivery formats? and, What are the advantages and disadvantages of m-earning? Additionally, the implications of m-learning for leaders in the postsecondary context will be examined.
