Abstract: Educational institutions are becoming involved in adopting technological innovations like the mobile learning (m-Learning) platform for education. Mobile technologies are the next frontier as infrastructure for m-Learning because they can provide high-quality learning capabilities to satisfy the rising student demand for mobility and flexibility due to the ubiquitous nature of mobile technology (smartphones) and the vast opportunities it offers, there are indications that smartphones could lead the next generation for learning platforms. Researchers have examined the idea from several angles and produced a copious amount of literature devoted to explaining the interrelationships of technology and learning. In this research we aim to offer a view of students' perspectives, giving a systematic examination of m-Learning adoption that can be used as a framework for further research into the success of m-Learning. We found that making learning more interesting, increasing productivity, and providing internet access had the greatest effect on student's perceptions.
