When an instructor is able to identify, develop and apply appropriate digital media
content that motivates learners and encourages them to learn, the process of learning is
empowered. This study has identified multimedia digital content packaged in the format of
video as the most preferred learning media by the learners. Content formats that had highest
hit rate with accessed mean rate above 300 (discussion forums, video clips, and graphics)
are discussed.

The rapid growth of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has brought
about significant changes in the practice of e-learning globally. In recent years, there has
been an increasing adoption of Learning Management System (LMS) assisted e-learning in
higher education institutions (HEIs) in developing countries. Despite the perceived benefits
attached to e-learning, several studies concur that there are still many challenges facing e-
learning.

BN I, EI O. "Mobile Learning: A Bridging Technology of Learner Entry Behavior in a Flipped Classroom Model.". In: Handbook of Research on Active Learning and the Flipped Classroom Model in the Digital Age. Information Science Reference; 2016. Abstract

The use of technology in teaching and learning processes has brought a major shift in the way instructors have to design instructions. The cost of mobile devices has declined with time making the devices affordable. All undergraduate learners own a mobile device and their expectations and demand for access of learning content on these devices has increased. While learner’s entry skill levels into a course unit have been a great concern to instructors, the use of a mobile learning system can bridge this concern. The instructors need to focus on making the mobile learning experience more exiting to the learner. This paper has explored how varying learner entry behavior is bridged through an experiment by using a control group and a treatment group. The treatment group was instructed through mobile learning system while the control group was instructed using traditional face to face with no support of mobile learning technology. The results have shown that varied learner entry skills do not determine the intended learning outcome. The learners with or without prior skill and instructed using the support of mobile learning system performs without bias of prior skills.
