Abstract

While the significance of nowadays mobile technologies to support deep learning has been recognised, the impact factors of applying these technologies into various organisational learning environment still remain poorly understood. This research has explored the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework as the lens to understand culture and context impact on mobile technology application to facilitate learners’ engagement and educational experiences. Two sharp-contrast case studies are selected to provide the practical insight of the research. Results infer that usage of mobile technology has a positive impact on organisational learning which leads to greater learning engagement as long as culture and context are considered as key issues to select appropriate mobile technologies. These factors decide the mobile native functions, delivery platforms and provided learning contents, which are key elements in the proposed CoI framework in the context of M-learning.
