HCI STANDARDS FOR DEVELOPING MOBILE LEARNING APPLICATIONS IN EDUCATION

Near East University (CYPRUS)
In recent decades, smartphones have become an inseparable part of people’s daily lives, particularly among younger generations. Education, business, and marketing are some of the fields that now widely utilize smartphone platforms and applications. In the past several years, education has also been significantly influenced by the smartphone. In this regard, mobile learning (ML) and ubiquitous learning (UL) have emerged as important learning modes. ML and UL are capable of utilizing smartphone devices to run specific learning applications or mobile tools. Appropriate interaction between the instructor and the learner is one of the vital parts of pedagogy. However, the user interface design is one of the main challenges to mobile application developers. Standards for proper interactions between mobile devices and users are detailed in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) standards or Mobile HCI. Furthermore, Mobile HCI has been determined to be a more effective tool for usability testing in order to achieve acceptable mobile application results. The current study theoretically explains the importance of HCI in education and describes how HCI could be used to enhance the interactions between mobile devices and learners in both ML and UL environments. The authors anticipate that this paper will be beneficial for researchers and mobile application developers by considering the impact of HCI in the success of mobile applications.
