Can Lean Media Enhance Large Group Learning? An Empirical Investigation of Mobile Information and Communication Technology

Helen S. Du, Jin-Xing Hao, Ron Chi-Wai Kwok, Christian Wagner
2006 Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems  
A mobile information and communication technology, namely the Mobile Interactive Learning System (MILS), was used to enhance large group learning in a university setting.  ...  The results were drawn from an empirical evaluation of a structural equation model, and from analyses of variance between the two users groups (with versus without MILS).  ...  Hence, the key research question of this article is as follows: "Can a lean communication medium, namely mobile ICT, enhance learning when used in a large group classroom environment?"  ...
