Abstract

Mobile learning has huge potential benefits to students’ learning and one day mobile learning is likely to become a natural way for anybody to learn. We are, however, less sure how students are ready for the strategies right now and how fast they are gaining this readiness. The paper reports two instances of small-scale survey administrations at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in an effort to solicit background information about the readiness of students, as well as investigate whether readiness has changed even over a short period of nine months. We found changes of students’ hardware in this period, i.e. higher concentration of smart phones were owned by the students; but in terms of user habits and the connectivity of these devices to the internet, no big changes were recorded. Care is needed still if we want to introduce mobile learning strategies that students may not be ready yet.
