Wireless technology impacts human living, not only in the business environment, but also in the education environment. Mobile devices such as PDAs and mobile phones, can be used to increase students' motivation in learning, without the limitation of time and place. Mobile learning is the next generation of learning that uses mobile devices in education to enhance active learning. The purpose of this research is to investigate the potential of mobile learning at postgraduate level in the authors' faculty. We propose an interactive mobile learning system for human-computer interaction (HCI) study in a faculty of Information technology. The system consists of three main features, including multilingual computer assisted instruction (CAI), an interactive Web board, and a class alert system to support mobile learners using PDAs.
