As I am writing a book chapter on mobile learning I thought I would discuss an interesting topic that has come up in my research: what is the difference between mLearning and eLearning since both mobile devices and computers can access materials and content through the internet? From what I have found thus far, there are a few differences that separate the two:

2. Immediate access/responses – You can text someone and get an immediate response
