There has been an increase in mobile learning projects reported in scholarly conferences and publications. Our project consists of investigating the integration of mobile learning into an undergraduate Zoology module in which students undertook research projects in groups. In this paper, we report on students" adoption rate of the mobile learning option and their perceptions of its utility, with the aim of informing the design of sustainable mobile learning environments. Few students made use of the mobile learning infrastructure because existing means were preferred and mobile learning was perceived to be irrelevant for the learning task.
