Mobile technology is increasingly an element to be considered in the new
paradigm in education in general, and in higher education in
particular. In addition, computers and information technology have
increased educational opportunities and have opened the way to new
teaching methods. Due to this, several concepts from the e-learning,
m-learning and u-learning appeared. Therefore, it is critical to
understand whether users (students and professors) are receptive and
aware to adapt to this new paradigm before deciding to implement
teaching-learning methods based on mobile technology. In this context,
the aim of this paper is to investigate the perception of professors in
higher education, the area of technology in Portugal in relation to
m-learning, and to identify the needs of professors as they relate to
mobile technologies and how they can be used to promote student’s
engagement inside and outside of the classroom.
