Abstract: The paper studied the interactive features that are crucial to the success of mobile learning (m-learning). First, the paper developed an interactive m-learning model with six interactive modules to analyse interactive usability features among instructor, student, and content. These modules were further decomposed and 76 features were identified. Secondly, the Interactive M-Learning Questionnaire (IMLQ) was developed to quantitatively measure these interactive m-learning usability features. Thirdly, data were collected using IMLQ from 96 subjects. Factor analysis resulted in the identification of 15 interactive m-learning dimensions. A comparison between modules showed that people have no different preferences on different modules.
