Abstract

In theory, within ubiquitous learning environment, education is happening all around the student but the student may not even be conscious of the learning process. But, in this study, we consider the ubiquitous learning environment where PMP (Personal Multimedia Player) is being used for delivering the learning-contents. And the purpose of this study is to identify the problematic factors recognized by PMP users in u-learning environment. A need analysis was used to identify and evaluate needs of 74 PMP users as well non-users. Based on the interviews of participants, we give a brief summary results on motivation for using PMP, purchasing and operating costs, category of contents being used, dissatisfying and problematic factors with using PMP in u-learning environment. Therefore, we present six categories of factors preventing the u-learning with PMP from being diffused such as lacks of awareness, loss of confidence, side-effects, lacks of education and support, costs, and lacks of contents. In conclusion, we suggest a set of guidelines which might help remove these the resistance factors.
