As mobile devices are gradually converging into Individual Information Centres, mobile learning becomes a viable learning channel that would fit the living style of today. IJMLO is a refereed, multidisciplinary journal for bridging the latest advances in mobile learning and organisation. It provides a global forum for presenting authoritative references, academically rigorous research and case studies. The journal publishes well-written and academically validated manuscripts in both theoretical development and applied research.
Topics covered include
- Globalisation of mobile learning, mobile life
- Lifelong learning, changing demographics, m-based Chinese learning
- Ubiquitous/pervasive learning, assessment, authentication, trust, security
- Asynchronous/asynchronous m-learning/coaching/training
- Collaborative GDSS, virtual workplace collaboration, virtual communities/universities
- Pedagogy/design methodology, time modularisation/management
- Decomposability/modular design of course contents
- Learning management/content management systems, m-learning efficacy/effect
- Learning/knowledge creation/strategy/methodologies, emerging technologies
- Value-based m-learning in commerce, integrated m-marketing communication
- Managing sustainable change/learning, innovative case studies
- Tools for mobile educational presentation/delivery, mobile tools for field study
- Corporate universities, new approaches/models to m-learning content diffusion
- Technologies/standards for developing tools, creating learning communities
- Ethical/copyright/cross-culture issues, problems/challenges
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.

Boosting science teaching with mobile technology
8 December, 2020
It can almost be taken as read that mobile communications technology can help with science education. However, there is little detailed research that has investigated how well mobile devices have been integrated into what might be called authentic learning in a formal science curriculum. Writing in the International Journal of Mobile Learning and Organisation, Wing Kei Yeung and Daner Sun of the Department of Mathematics and Information Technology at The Education University of Hong Kong, have explored how enquiry-based science might be assisted by mobile technology [...]More details...
