Mobile Learning developed from the growing capabilities and adoption of mobile devices since the late 1990s. Subsequently, mobile devices have become an indispensable tool for many, resulting in significant societal changes. However, while they have been assimilated into people’s lives, higher education mobile learning initiatives typically isolate the use of these devices, and so do not reflect the way they are used by learners. This chapter seeks to make a case for the end of “Mobile Learning” as a discrete area, and argues for mobile devices to be seen as potent tools to be integrated into the wider learning ecosystem.
