Abstract:


This paper starts with a literature review of the mobile learning usability contributions in various conferences and journals during 2002-2010. This review helps us to identify the user-centred methods and practices for developing mobile learning applications. In addition to the literature review, three ongoing m-learning projects are reviewed for user-centred development activities. This paper argues that despite the user-centered design (UCD) and participatory design (PD) methods sup-port the development of mobile learn-ing applications, the emotional factors are emerging as significant design issues in m-learning and provide important support for m-learning application development in the future.
