Abstract


This research focuses on the usage satisfaction of mobile learning among undergraduate students, and adopts the structure of close-ended and the Likert-Scale five-point measure questionnaire. There are 300 respondents from Southwest University. The questionnaires are randomly delivered to students from different majors and grades. The result indicates: 1) most of the undergraduate students are satisfied with mobile learning (76%) and will use mobile learning in future learning (84%). 2) More than half of the respondents have benefited from mobile learning, especially in quickly solving problems encountered in learning and making better use of learning time. 3) Undergraduate students are satisfied with the text content and image content in mobile learning, but the video content gets few agreements (11.4%). 4) The item “I am satisfied with the mobile learning resources provided by my university” gets the lowest mean score (M = 2.15), so teachers and universities should pay more energy and effort to promote the quality of mobile learning resources.
