Nowadays mobile communication is a part of culture among young people. Mobile phones are the vehicle for wider social change. Most of the millennials use social media tools such as Face book, Blogs, Twitter, Google, etc. They are 'always on' and connected to geographically-dispersed friendship groups. Mobile Learning means the personalized, connected, and interactive use of mobile phones in classrooms, collaborative learning, fieldwork, counseling and guidance. It is relevant for teaching, learning, research, and creative inquiry. It offers countless applications for self-study, reference, drill and practice, fieldwork, and research in hundreds of disciplines. Thus mobile learning has made "Education for all, anywhere, anytime, and any situation" possible. India has the world's second-largest mobile phone user base and the world's third-largest Internet user-base. In this context, the study conducted by Dr. C. Thenmozhi and Dr. K.S. Ramakrishnan is a significant one. This book deals with various dimensions of mobile learning in an exotic manner. It is not an exaggeration that this book is a must for students, teachers, and research scholars who are in the field of mobile learning. The book may pave the way for new findings. In that way, it is a lighthouse for the future researchers. The authors have penned such a good work in time and the academic fraternity may get many more such books in future.
