Development of an m-learning application for postgraduate university students
Keywords:m-learning, application development, postgraduate students, Android OS
The advancement in the field of mobile computing has introduced many new research topics, one of them being mobile learning. Mobile learning or “m-learning” plays an important role in education nowadays. It could provide fast access to any learning site and resources without limited time and space. This paper describes the development of a mobile learning application, focusing on a course offered at Razak Faculty of Technology and Informatics, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, named Research Methodology. The method used in this research is the application development approach using ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation). This mobile learning application (app) enables the students to access the research methodology notes and slides, at the same time providing a user interface that is friendly for the user. The application is also a modular platform where the course content can be edited by anyone without coding knowledge. It can be concluded that the m-learning application will become one of the main options for learning in the future.
