Mobile learning is becoming increasingly universal, which highlights the potential need for mobile learning strategies that support higher education institutions to navigate increasing globalisation and rapid technology change. Several higher education institutions already support their traditional learning modes with diverse mobile learning initiatives. In line with this trend, this paper emphasises the importance of considering human factors when developing mobile learning applications. It demonstrates and discusses the results of a study of twenty-three different higher education providers in Oman, with three scenarios involving administrators, instructors and students. Ultimately, the article proposes a MobiLearn framework to enhance the learning process in the current education system through the application of six human factors: flexibility, suitability, sociability, efficiency, enjoyment, and economics. The study is part of an Omani-funded research project, investigating the development, adoption and dissemination of M-learning in Oman.
