With rapid advancements in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and mobile devices, myriad applications (apps) and innovative m-learning and e-learning services are being developed and launched at an unprecedented pace. For students representing different demographics (age, education level, class, socioeconomic status, location, etc.) and enrolled in higher education, m-learning has quickly become the modern style and preferred format of learning and accessing knowledge for its ease of integrating different modes of learning. Motivated by this novel m-learning learning movement, this study synthesizes existing research on m-learning technologies, technological platforms that cater to both synchronous and asynchronous learning/teaching modalities for students and teachers at institutions of higher education.</p>
