Abstract

When mobile technology is utilized successfully in computer supported collaborative learning, it can engender students' feelings of belonging to a sate virtual community, which helps to construct shared knowledge through collaboration and applying information and experiences received from others. In this paper, our main argument is that collaborative learning through mobile technology can be successful only if virtual communication is supported by suitable means. In this case, different factors of knowledge sharing and social usability in the virtual learning environment along with issues of data security within the wireless network become crucial with respect to collaborative learning that is supported by mobile technology.
