mLearning is driven by technological evolution and an increase in mobile device users. Ryan and Finn observe that field-workers are prime candidates for mLearning. A context-aware learning system provides valuable solutions for field-workers, and for novice field-workers in particular (e.g. geologist, mechanic, archaeologist, journalist). The user-friendliness of any system is of significant importance. Systems should not be implemented purely for the sake of using technology, Ryan and Finn state, but be based on the requirements of an activity that embeds the use of technology.
