Abstract

Mobile learning is about using mobile technology to access digital information while moving from one place to another. It supports anywhere, anytime learning approach by taking the latest advancement in mobile device to redefine the responsibility of teachers and students, and connect formal and informal learning together. Due to the development of mobile technology, it becomes necessary for instructors to take advantage of such development for effective learning process. However, instructors and instructional designers face challenges due to the lack of standardization of the pedagogical and curriculum theories in mobile learning domain compared to traditional learning domain. Therefore, this study proposes an ontology based approach to provide a roadmap for designing mobile learning courses in general and learning objective and outcomes in specific. The study follows METHONTOLOGY development method and uses protégé tool to construct the ontology. The study provides some initial evaluation results on the proposed ontology.
