More on this journal...

With constant connectivity and the volume of information new mobile devices can deliver, mobile learning will shape the new landscape for organisational training and life-long learning as well as impromptu information gathering for problem solving. IJMLO intends to establish an effective communication channel among decision makers and policy makers in business, government agencies, and academic and research institutions which recognise the important role mobile learning may play in organisations. Specifically, IJMLO aims to be an outlet for creative, innovative concepts, as well as effective research methodologies and emerging technologies.


IJMLO intends to attract professionals in business, government and technology fields to share their insight in new technologies and new applications. It will also attract researchers in the academia who work in the field of technology management, engineering and business education to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJMLO publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, and management reports. Occasional Special Issues devoted to important topics in Mobile Learning and Organisation will also be published.

  • Condensing cloud solution


    Researchers in India point out that despite the enormously widespread use of mobile devices there remains the problem of limited storage capacity for many applications on such devices. Studies suggest that mobile cloud computing might remedy the situation. The team has now evaluated three such systems Mult Cloud, ES File Explorer and Cloud Cube in terms of CPU usage, battery consumption, time consumption and data usage parameters across Wi-Fi networks. They tested them using two mobile devices the Sony Xperia ZL smart phone and the Nexus 7 tablet. Their findings suggest that while the systems may solve the storage problem and they lead to lower battery consumption, they are all inefficient in CPU usage and data costs. It is time cloud developers stepped up to condense a multi-cloud solution that can address all the issues [...]
