Fragmentation in Mobile Learning

Our research interest is targeted to learning situations, which
are made reachable by bringing mobility to learning. Learning with
mobile devices is a highly fragmented process and this should be
taken into account in designing as well as in developing evaluation
methods for m-learning materials and environments.
Fragmentation is understood as experience becoming fragmented when
amount of incoming information and number of communication sources
are increasing. This paper addresses this issue by describing a
tentative list of components of m-learning, and by emphasising the
need for viewpoints of learning as a fragmented process and user
experiences as an overarching elements of m-learning.
