Teaching and learning have recently been
influenced by the fast growing of sophisticated mobile phone
technologies. On the other hand, in ensuring the developed
devices are usable to the users, it is insufficient to merely
rely on advanced educational device itself. This paper hence
presents a proposed mobile learning management system
(MLMS) namely MobileSchool for secondary schools in
Malaysia. For the purpose of MobileSchool development, an
initial study had been conducted to achieve three main
objectives: to determine the target users’ familiarity level on
Learning Management System (LMS) usages, to identify
target users’ readiness level of utilizing to-be developed
MLMS in their daily teaching and learning activities; and to
get users’ proposed functions that need to be included in the
system. This study employed two approaches for the data
collection which included questionnaire and interview. The
questionnaire instrument involved 575 students from
secondary schools in Perak. The data were then triangulated
through interviews that involved 10 teachers and 10 parents
using similar questions developed in the questionnaire. Both
data were compared with the results that have been
produced by three similar studies. The results show that
students were quite familiar with LMS and they gave
positive feedbacks on utilization of the system that will be
developed. Besides, the results were also in line with
produced results of three similar studies. Finally,
MobileSchool has been developed based on the functions
proposed by respondents.
