The advancement of e-learning will soon be in line with the development of smartphones and tablets, according to one expert. A representative from the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester, suggested that mobile technologies will be an important driving force behind the future of the online learning industry. Grainne Conole, director of the alliance at the university, said: “I was always dubious about mobile learning until I saw things like the iPhone – which is transformative – and some of the things like tablets for example.” She added that mobile devices are listed as the most likely technology to have the largest amount of influence in the learning sector.
