Abstract:Mobile devices are transcending educational and professional environments at an ever-increasing rate by redefining our understanding of how, when and where we learn. The purpose of the study was to inform researchers of the attitudes and opinions related to the participant experience in a Mobile Device-Based Learning Environment (MDBLE) and to improve the effectiveness of the web-based instructional module, mobile videoconference intervention, and the social mobile learning aspects of the MDBLE. This research employed a single case study design that thoroughly investigated and documented student experiences using the MDBLE. The bounding frame was comprised of the literature on mobile technology, mobile learning theories, community of practice, social media, gamification and mobile flipped online instruction. Data gathered from interviews, surveys and researcher observations were analyzed to provide a rich description of the case. Overall results indicate that respondents were self-directed learners. Positive attitudes supported the belief that online courses provide opportunities for learners to interact with their peers via different channels, indicating a favorable desire for collaboration when taking an online course. Multiple significant conclusions were reached.
