Abstract
This paper proposes a conceptual framework for mobile learning applications that provides
systematic support for mobile learning experience design. It is based on a combination of a game
metaphor and several studies of mobile learning contexts. Accounts of four mobile learning projects
are used to explore the relationship between the framework and mobile learning design
requirements in practice. By applying the framework to previous successful mobile learning
implementations, we are better able to understand their key qualities. Similarly, the framework
provides forward engineering support for the successful design of future mobile learning systems.
