Abstract

A variety of e-learning theories, models, and strategy have been developed to support educational settings. There are many factors for designing good instructional settings. This study set out to determine functionality of mobile devices, students who already have, and the student needs and views in relation to e-learning settings. The study participants are undergraduate students who are enrolled department of science education in faculty of education and electrical and electronics engineering department in faculty of engineering. Prepared questionnaire form is used to collect data. This form consists of three parts. First part of questionnaire related to mobile devices, second part related to user preferences and third part contains open ended question to get students ideas about usage of self-phones in science educational settings. Countable data are analyzed with descriptive techniques. And content analysis technique is used for written data. Findings show that mobile phones should be selected as required equipment for usage of mobile devices in e-learning setting. Other important findings that students suggest that mobile phone can be used face to face educational setting in classroom and outside of classroom without and face to face interaction to teacher or students.
