The increasing widespread of mLearning application in educational institutions, museums business organisations and other contexts justifies the need for a concept in defining the education practice across these contexts, and also because of the clear concept in defining research agenda and producing predictions and generalizations. The present arguments on concepts of mlearning in the literature do not necessarily define mlearning’s unique characteristics. These characteristics are important to be appropriately defined and presented for better understanding of mlearning as future concept of sustainable learning for all. Learning theories, design, activities, and practices for mlearning would then be appropriately described once the concept of the learning is appropriately constructed. Hence the study discussed the important elements and characteristics of mlearning concept which essentially differs it from other technology based learning. The study also proposed an adapted model of mlearning for clearer mapping of the concept.
