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.

Index Terms—Self-directed learning, mobile learning, English education.
