MOBILE LEARNING SECURITY ISSUES FROM LECTURERS’ PERSPECTIVES (NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES CASE STUDY)

S.A. Shonola, M. Joy

The University of Warwick (UNITED KINGDOM)
The demand for mobile learning has continued to increase due to recent advances in modern technologies. Mobile learning advocates in universities focus their attention mainly on course development, deployment and delivery on handheld devices. They pay little or no consideration to security and privacy of stakeholders’ data in the design of mobile learning systems. However, the use of mobile technologies for learning poses a threat to confidentiality, integrity and privacy of the data involved in learning delivery for both learners and lecturers. This paper discusses the security concerns of mobile learning from the lecturers’ perspective based on a study conducted in Higher education institutions in Nigeria. While the challenges of adopting mobile learning in Nigerian universities are enormous, the study identifies the critical security challenges that educators are facing when using mobile devices for educational purposes. It further examines the damaging effects of mobile learning to educators and provides recommendations for alleviating the security threats.
