AbstractThe world has passed through different phases of technology enhanced learning ranging from distance learning to mobile learning, an extension of e-learning. Currently, attention is drawn towards location-aware, context-aware and ubiquitous learning systems. The slow pace of development in Nigeria has hindered technologically enhanced learning in institutions of higher learning. The purpose of this paper was to assess the status of mobile learning in institutions of higher learning in Nigeria. The study adopted a theoretical approach by reviewing the possibilities and applications of Mobile Learning System globally and in particular Nigeria. The review showed that despite the huge success stories that have been recorded in the application of mobile learning across the world, the situation is different in Nigeria - as the literature indicated little success in this direction. More specifically no evidence of application or adoption of mobile learning in Colleges of Education in Nigeria could be established from the literature. The study concluded that with the emergence of new learning systems, there is need to conduct an in-depth study, to ascertain the feasibility of developing a model for implementing mobile learning in Colleges of Education in Nigeria.
