Abstract: As an emergency response to continuing education amidst the recent COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, institutions turned to a new form of practice - synchronised online virtual teaching with mobile technologies. In this paper, we share our experience at a university level. Students (N = 1,996 students in Study 1 and N = 413 students in Study 2) completed a survey on their perception, the learning process, and the challenges they encountered when learning with a mobile device in the online virtual learning medium. Our findings suggested students show improvement in learning in the synchronised online virtual teaching with mobile technologies across time. Thus, this form of teaching model holds the promise of becoming the model for future teaching and learning practices. Hence, we hope to pave the way for research and learning opportunity to advance our understanding of the new education model with mobile technologies, especially under uncontrollable circumstances.
