The use of computers and the Internet has successfully enabled the educational institutions to provide their students and staff members with various online educational services. With the recent developments in the mobile technology, further possibilities are emerging to provide such services via mobile devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. By extending the educational services to wireless medium, the educational institutions can potentially bring great convenience to those off-campus learners who do not always have time to find Internet enabled computers to get the important information from their academic institutions. With the mobile educational services, both the learners and the teachers can access the services anytime and anywhere they want. This paper first discusses those educational services that can be moved to the mobile platform and then describes a mock-up system to integrate these services into the mobile platform. The paper will conclude with description of the formative evaluation of the mock-up system.
