dc.description.abstract Research on mobile learning has found that the small keypad and smartphone monitor sizes discourage any enhanced collaboration and discussion longer than a couple of sentences. In order to ensure a well-rounded mobile learning experience for the smartphone user, an alternate method of input will have to be utilized especially as mobile devices become smaller and more integrated in our society. The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate a mobile-based module which instructs smartphone users on how to utilize a speech-to-text app in place of typing for online assignments. Participants learn how to record, edit, copy and paste on Dragon Dictation, a speech-to-text app, and then are asked to complete three final challenges. These tasks have participants dictate 1-2 paragraphs of introduction, reflection, and feedback, common discussion assignments required of online learners. Attitudinal pre-, embedded, and post surveys were used to gather participant data. Overall, data analysis revealed that participants did see the benefits of using speech-to-text technology in place of typing on their smartphones for online assignments and that they were more comfortable and motivated to use one in the future after module completion.
