Abstract: A study of the potential of mobile learning (m-learning) to contribute to the development in a typical rapidly developing country (Iran) is presented. Established educational theories are applied in order to classify potential modalities for m-learning: sample surveys of the reactions of typical user groups were taken and analysed. It is concluded that m-learning will be the best to be executed within the informal framework of learning, not only supplementing the school curriculum, but also extending powerfully into lifelong learning, especially for isolated rural/agricultural communities. It is further concluded that the standard mobile phone is, and will continue for some time to be, the dominant platform.
