—A topography of mobile learning and the author’s
research work in the three phases of mobile learning are
delineated in this paper. The aim is to provide the diachronic
summary of the author as well as other researchers in these
three phases of mobile learning namely the focus on devices,
learning outside classroom and the mobility of learners. The
research covers in many domains of mobile learning. A brief
discussion on the salient characteristics of mobile learning and
the issues will be provided. Hopefully, the experience learnt can
be valuable for other researchers in the field.
