Modelling an Institutional Mobile Learning Readiness Analyser
Due to the affordability, ease of use and availability of mobile devices, many people in Africa and developing countries have acquired at least a mobile device. The penetration of mobile devices places many learning institution in a position to adopt mobile learning, however there are few tools for measuring mobile learning readiness for an institution. The research work presented by this paper has developed a method or framework to be a tool for measuring the mobile learning readiness. The Kenya Education Network (KENET) e-readiness framework was modified through a logical framework to fit mobile indicators. Staging method used had value 1as least while 4 as the best. An institution of higher learning (University) was used to validate the framework. A survey results used revealed the institution was ready to adopt mobile learning as a means of delivering teaching and learning. The institution scored a mobile learning readiness index of 2.61 above the benchmark of 2.5 set by KENET. The researcher recommends use of mobile learning readiness framework to all learning institutions intending to implement mobile learning.
