USE OF SMARTPHONE AND APPS IN LEARNING PROCEDURE3Introduction The tremendous development in the ICT or information and communicationtechnology is helping to improve the way teaching and learning and carried out in differentuniversities. This development makes significant impact on the learning process of thestudents as the use of the smartphones helps them to access the required informationwhenever or wherever they need it. ICTs encourages prompt access to data assets required forimproved learning process. According to, Woodcock, Middleton and Nortcliffe, (2012), ICTshave abilities of enhancing the accessibility to the information; encouraging communicationsbetween instructors and the learners through the by means of electronic communicationchannels; improving synchronous learning and; enhancing collaboration and coordinatedeffort (Haßler, Major & Hennessy, 2016). In the learning process, ICTs are known to be morecost-effectiveness as they encourage among students and mentors or the instructors of theircourses. Among the different tools that can be used for improving the learning process are thesmart phones as these are the most common tools that are possessed and utilized amongstudents participating in the higher studies. These devices can give reasonable learning stagesas they have a considerable measures of digital applications that instructors and students mayuse in their scholarly activities. Learning through smart phones is often considered as m-learning or e-learning (Woodcock,Middleton & Nortcliffe, 2012). The smart phones havethe capability of enhancing the learning process/forms as these devices are cheaper whencontrasted with different other ICT tools that can be utilized for learning process. The following research report contributes to the role of the smart phones in the higherstudies, its impact or effectiveness on the learning process, Different types of learningactivities that can be facilitated by the smart phones, the limiting factors that can have

USE OF SMARTPHONE AND APPS IN LEARNING PROCEDURE4impacts on the effectiveness of the smart phones in the learning process. In addition to thatthe future scope of the use of the smart phones is also discussed in different sections of thisreport. Use of smart phones in higher studies The expanded pervasiveness of the smart phones has the extraordinary potential thatmay help in developing new applications for a course or learning process to be used in theinstructional system. Several applications can be developed and distributed to enable theenrolled students to get to online course content, convey ideas with the peer students,communicate and collaborate with the instructors of a course(Woodcock,Middleton &Nortcliffe, 2012). In the present scenario user interfaces are developed in such a manner thatit can be to utilized by different smartphones to make the communication process simpler andto enhance the learning process. One off the common elements in the learning process in a traditional classroom is theopen communications between instructor and students. For instance, the student’s sharesopinions and comments on the course subject with instructors and other peer students (Al-Emran, Elsherif & Shaalan, 2016). The instructors of the course questions and assesses theresults of students which gives the instructors to determine about the level of understandingof the students about a certain topic taught in the course. According to different surveys, it is found that, 73% of undergraduates or collegestudents own smartphones that they may use in accessing the course resources and forcommunication with the instructors (Haßler, Major & Hennessy, 2016). Use of the smart phone apps for the courses also make the tasks of the instructors orlecturers much easier. For instance, use of the smart phones can help in

USE OF SMARTPHONE AND APPS IN LEARNING PROCEDURE5Objective of this research The main objectives of this research paper is discussed below,Objective 1: Assessment of the effect of the use of smart phones on the on thestudents’ academic learning process by assessing the experiences and opinions of thestudents.Objective 2: This research paper on the use of the smart phones in the higher studiesof information technology will also help in determining the most preferred environment inwhich the undergraduates can use their devices that may support in their learning activities oftheir coursework. Thus helping in the exploration of the most preferred time or environmentin which they can use their smart phones for learning.Objective 3: Determining the feature of the smart phones that the students consider asthe most significant towards their learning process. Also to further determine whetherstudents regard some features as more important than others for improving their learningexperience. Impact of usage of smart phones in higher studiesAs described by Beckman, Bennett & Lockyer, (2014) in their paper, smart phonelearning applications can encourage students in not only easily access to the course contentseasily but also in interacting with the other students cooperatively whenever they want andfrom any place. Subsequently, the advancement of e-learning process through the smartphones also helps in the learning procedure undergraduate students in higher studies. Thesmart phones enables the students in accessing the web based content, share it, work togetherwith others and make media rich deliverable or assignments for the instructors. As per Al-Emran, Elsherif & Shaalan (2016), most of the universities and colleges in Australia have
