Gone are those days when students used to rely on the lessons taught in the classroom by their teacher. The world today focuses more attention on the m-Learning. As mobile phones are in possession with everyone, which can be used for providing education for every individual.

The various mobile applications have proved its worth in engaging students to learn. This provides learning and fun activities both together to enjoy the teaching technique. Let us have a look at various benefits and how it can substitute the classroom learning-

Topics like Volume of a sphere that can be easily understood in three-dimension thorough m-Learning.

Thus providing a personal learning tool can be helpful for the students to study at their own pace.

This can benefit students to study in an easy manner.

This would result in the lack of interest for studies, as it would be difficult to continue studies without clearing the doubts. But with the availability of mobile phones, each and every doubt can be made easily understandable. This helps to continue the flow and maintain interest in learning.


(v) Distance Learning- It is possible to learn from any place around the world without being physically present there. This has been made possible with the advancement of technology. Previously one used to travel a lot to learn but now it is possible to study from home- Thanks to the internet.
