This paper proposes a framework that helps in closing the gap that exists between the mobile learning environment and students' everyday use of mobile devices. This new framework for Digital Rights Management in systems for mobile learning enhances the ability to define, manage, and share the licensed learning multimedia content among different mobile networks. The major strength of the proposed framework is to position the role of the university in the m-learning value chain as a policy setter, not an implementer. The new framework introduces a new approach that while the university may have a Web portal page for mobile learning material, it should not host or provide the complete delivery service. Instead, the university should let the content providers handle that role.
