Abstract—Advancements in information technology have
made available tools that allow learning to take place anytime

e-Learning, or more recently as m-Learning. The discussion
around e-Learning and m-Learning reflects the skills needed in
the modern labour market, and it highlights the importance of
technology in the modern society. Consequently, there are
significant pressures to develop learning environments that use
modern technology. With all technology and portable devices
