To plan for future mobile learning two military educational schools conducted a study of current mobile device ownership and use by their students. Survey results show that a majority of students say they would use mobile learning if it were available, with a higher fraction of students interested in mobile learning the younger the student body, which suggests demand for mobile learning will continue to grow in the future. The results seem to align with general higher education institutions, with younger students showing increasing use of mobile devices and interest in accessing online learning materials. Besides e-mail and web browsing on their mobile devices, students want to be able to access course management systems; sync course calendars across their devices; access course reading materials; and use mobile applications that support class work and provide remote access to class lectures.
