Abstract


It has been acknowledged that the mobile learning concept has extended numerous opportunities for teachers as well as students, as it makes way for an active learning atmosphere anywhere and anytime.  Mobile learning technology can be resourcefully improvised by extending the cloud technology into it. This study is an attempt to analyze the impact of mobile cloud computing on learning competencies of engineering students. The main intention is to experiment whether mobile learning using cloud technology has an impact on student’s performance by investigating the influence of this innovative teaching technique on course outcomes. The results illustrated that use of cloud based mobile learning in studying an engineering subject is rewarding and does has an encouraging impact on learning competencies of students. The results distinctively indicate that cloud based mobile learning can be effectively used for learning engineering subjects that results in superior attainment of course outcomes.
