This paper presents a conceptual framework for Open University Malaysia’s (OUM) M-Learning Portal. As an extension of the currently practised blended learning approach to distance education, mobile learning offers learners a learning experience based on greater access to learning material anytime anywhere. This paper focuses on the development of a conceptual framework for mobile learning which is based on eight criteria covering mobile learning objectives, learning styles and strategies, varied media formats, a platform that sustains learning materials and additional features that accommodate successful implementation of mobile learning. The portal for housing and the delivery of mobile learning materials must be practical and accessible for all OUM learners. These materials can be presented in a structure that promotes self-selection of material by students, the hallmark of discovery learning. The success of mobile learning also relies on the awareness created and the support given to the learners. (Authors' abstract)
