As the penetration of high-end mobile devices are increasing around the world, with the similar fashion, the structure of education system is also transforming from traditional form to more sophisticated digital format. The “mobile education” is potentially viable to change the way of education by delivering a huge learning contents for a billion people across the world. Indeed, the learning is transforming through mEducation (mobile education)–a wide numbers of educational videos, files, and other contents are available on devices.

According to GSMA, there’s still lots of hurdle in the both developing and developed nations in order to provide a better mEducation to folks. The association has also stated that there’s an extra burden on IT sectors to develop tech-based products to facilitate users around the world. In addition to these, a stiff cultural resistances and misconceptions (about the Smartphones and Tablets) are preventing to adopt the new methodology into the classroom across the world.

The GSM association has predicted that the mEducation market might generate a global revenue of US$70 billion for mobile operators by 2020, whereas,  mEducation products and services are expected to create a US$38. As per the association, nearly 90% revenue of mEducation’s products and services would be driven from educational contents such as e-Books, software (educational apps) and platform (learning management systems and mobile learning environments).

The most of earnings are expected to come from educational contents such as learning materials of students from Kindergarten to grade 12 equivalent (say age between six to 18)–which is estimated to be around 55% of global expenditure on the education. However, the association has said that higher education segment will account around 30% of global mEducation expenditure by 2020.

In India, two mobile devices manufacturers such as Micromax and HCL have introduced its Tablet lineups for students which contain pre-installed educational material for students (from kindergarten to 12 grade equivalents) as well as for professionals. Last year, Indian government with collaboration of a Canadian manufacturer–Datawind–developed the world’s cheapest Tablet “Aakash” for the students.
