The research strongly indicates the role of support needed for lecturers to successfully implement mobile learning into the classroom. Support is needed in terms of supporting general literacy. In particular, support is needed to help teachers with the technology and supporting them to effectively integrate it into the teaching environment.

This research has added to and clarified the existing literature into mobile learning. In particular, it recognizes the role that lecturers play in the future acceptance of mobile learning. It shows that the factors that influence lecturers’ adoption of mobile learning may differ from those of their students and therefore need to be considered when implementing mobile technology into the teaching environment.

In general, though these factors have been explored in other studies, gauging ICT adoption, there have been a limited number of studies specifically looking at mobile learning adoption by lecturers. The measures adopted in this study focus on existing variables, such as digital literacy, ICT anxiety and ICT teaching self-efficiency, to a context of mobile learning. This however may limit the study’s findings, in general, since the variables adopted are ICT focused, rather mobile specific. Despite this however, the study has been able to confirm the role of perceived ease of use and usefulness on the acceptance of mobile learning. However, results have indicated that mobile learning adoption is influenced by some of the same factors that influence adoption of other technologies in the classroom. The findings indicate that mobile technology may not be too dissimilar to other technology adoption in education. However, a different approach may be needed when introducing mobile technology to lectures. Specifically, if mobile learning is to be introduced into the classroom, teachers need to first have a good foundation in general computing. The need to scaffold technologies is seen as very important to successful introduction of mobile learning.
