This work focuses on miscellaneous means to measure students’ performance which requires hard work, commitment, collaborative and organizational skills, true communication and engagement. Using Mobile Learning and other technology is often challenging to students’ capabilities and sometimes intimidating, especially for those who have never used it before. In this study, we will discuss how students’ classroom use of the Mobile Learning can make a significant improvement when it is well integrated and adopted in students personal skills such as; using organization, communication , assuming responsibilities, critical reading and writing, , problem solving, class engagement, increasing learning interest, emphasizing communities contribution and self evaluation. We will also discuss students’ struggle which is not academic, but rather a lack of individual and personal skills. We will discuss students’ environment, delivery mode and the associated learning process that show a significant improvement in students’ way of learning. This study is a sample of U.G.R.U.
