As mobile devices with wireless access become more readily available, learning delivered via mobile devices of all types must be designed to ensure successful learning. This paper addresses three questions related to the design of mobile learning: 1) what mobile learning (m-learning) guidelines can be identified in the current literature, 2) what m-learning frameworks exist and what do they claim about the design of m-learning, and 3) what insights can be gained from attempts to bring m-learning to developing countries. Based an examination of these questions, we aim to synthesize existing guidelines, understand these guidelines in light of the theory of transactional distance, and present a preliminary discussion of reasons why m-learning is not merely an evolution of e-learning. We also identify areas where additional research is needed to further develop guidelines and frameworks and address these topics.
