Due to new developments in information communication technologies using computers, smartphones and their apps, there have been many drastic changes for the higher education sector. International organizations such as the United Nations have recognized ICT as a useful tool in various learning sectors. Accordingly, many developed countries are investing in infrastructure information communication technologies. Focusing on technology-based learning methods is coping with the different learning methods among young people and even countries in the third world are making efforts to benefit from the computer and smartphone technological expansion. Smartphones and iPads are popular among college students because they are easy to carry, wireless, with many apps that make it easy for students to perform multiple tasks at one booth and to connect while roaming. All of these have helped to increase mobile devices’ popularity because of their ability to handle multiple tasks.
In addition, the competitive business industry has forced manufacturers to present new creative features of competitive features. Thus, it was noticed that these devices have a major impact on the nature of higher education, advanced methods of learning, and the future role of these devices in the development and specification of alumni skills. Because smartphones extend the learning environment by using smartphones and their apps, the addition of the learning environment represents a highly developed trend in the higher education and e-learning sector, due to the easy transmission of teaching experiences via smartphones, as well as the use of educational programs and information transfer outside the routine use of information communication.
1. The feasibility for private and official university students of those devices and their apps for the educational process.
2. The future looks to upgrade the outcomes of private universities to cope with future job market requirements.
3. The financial opportunities available to the private education sector and potential communication and negotiation with the private employment sector.
E-learning in third world countries is still developing slowly. In most university departments, the concept of e-learning focuses on learning computer components and some applications from the Microsoft office. This deprives students and learners of reaching out to learning materials and methods to identify new educational products through computer and mobile apps that have fast-growing e-market trends. The rapid growth of mobile apps has helped turn mobile devices into a new learning tool because, on the one hand, they are easily transported and, on the other hand, they are increasingly supporting and shortening learning modes and cooperative e-learning.
Mobile learning is defined as the type of learning that mini-computers can accomplish. Smartphones, iPads and the like are all considered e-learning modes. Specify mobile learning as all types of digital and wireless technology presented to the public and used by learners of higher education. Other researchers deplore the concept of mobile learning as the simultaneous use of mobile phones to transmit learning between learners. Mobile learning has become a relatively new tool for many students learning processes that have found it easy to use the many options available to them, such as websites, learning and training network pages, and mobile apps that facilitate and support learning activities. Smartphones and iPads contribute significantly to the leaning process as students use the educational content they offer so that they can control their content, especially when no laptops or desktops are available.
