Abstract

In this 4.0 era, where technology has been a part of our daily lives, the integration of smart devices into education is an indispensable movement that we are striving for. Hence, the application of mobile devices into learning, M-learning is becoming a trendy approach and a quality assurance’s measurement for almost every academic institution. Technology makes education available for students almost anywhere, anytime, and offers unlimited access to learning resources. Furthermore, M-learning is also reported to have a positive impact on students’ learning autonomy. Hence, this paper aims at validating possibilities to amplify this aspect of M-learning and suggesting an appropriate M-learning model at Nguyen Tat Thanh university (NTTU). The paper investigates students’ needs, requirements, ability to adapt to the new trend of M-learning plus the external elements affecting their learning autonomy to come up with the learning model. Surveys were collected from students in the Faculty of Foreign Languages and analyzed using a qualitative method to provide educators and teachers at NTTU with insightful information and careful preparation before launching new approaches to M-learning.
