Mobile Learning (mLearning) describes a new trend of learning that uses innovations like wireless communication, personal digital assistants, digital content from traditional textbooks, and other sources to provide a dynamic learning environment. With the facility of connecting people and information world-widely, the Internet has a major impact on the traditional education. Currently, students can easily access online courses at anytime anywhere in the globe. Since the Internet has been adopted by students, traditional pedagogical models are no more appropriate models. Consequently, new pedagogical models are required. Such models should be student-centric that based on individual student's learning expectation, styles, interests and abilities.
