Abstract—The importance of Self-directed learning (SDL) in
education is increasing in the recent years. It helps promote
students’ lifelong learning attitudes and improve the learning
effectiveness. This stud evaluates the efficiency and
effectiveness of using SDL for teaching a group of students with
the use of an innovative mobile learning technology “iClass”
which facilitates real-time interactive class via a cloud-based
platform. The results demonstrate that interactive mobile
learning is a good solution to engage students in lesson and to
uplift the effectiveness of self-directed learning.
