University Students’ Attitudes toward Cell-Phone Based Learning

Yaacov J. Katz, School of Education, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

Abstract

Three groups of first year university students who studied Jewish concepts in a 15 week long (semester) course were exposed to three different modes of concept delivery. The first group of students received weekly lists of Jewish concepts sent via SMS messages to their cell-phones, the second group received weekly lists of identical Jewish concepts sent via email messages to their inboxes, and the third group of students received weekly snail mail lists of Jewish concepts. At the end of the semester the students in the three groups were tested on a standardized Jewish concepts achievement test and responded to a questionnaire that examined their levels of learner curiosity, learner self-efficacy and learner technological self-confidence.
