This paper investigates the move to a new era of learning by using mobility technology. M-learning is distinct in its focus on learning across contexts and learning with mobile devices. It takes advantage of learning opportunities offered by using mobile devices and wireless transmission to enhance the existing Learning Management Systems (LMS) that can potentially provide important opportunities for learning and collaborative interaction. Moodle is one of the most attractive LMS around the world due to its outstanding features and reliability. Although portable technology offered anywhere-anytime discussions, the technical problems encountered when using the WAP-enabled phones hindered participation in the e-discussions.
