Abstract: Students at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in developing countries face challenges not limited to large classes and inability to quickly understand lectures as these are delivered in English language which is adopted in most higher education as a medium of instruction. This challenge is compounded for students who speak English as their second or third language. Although podcasts and vodcasts are increasingly becoming popular in HEIs as a means of augmenting face-to-face (f2f) lectures, their limitations are well documented. In this paper we report on a MOBILect, an interactive mobile lecturing tool that aimed to mitigate the limitations of podcasting or vodcasting and fosters deep learning. The tool was evaluated at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria. This paper describes MOBILect, its architecture, design and implementation and also its ability for enhancing learning in higher education.
