The use of mobile technology has become a part of our daily
lives and enabled us to perform tasks that once were possible only on
stationary computers on-the-go anywhere and at any time. This shift
has also affected the way we learn. The use of mobile devices on-the-go
requires users to multitask and divide attention between several activi-
ties. In the context of learning, it may lead to high cognitive load and
potential disruptions. While many MOOC platforms have provided the
possibility for learning on mobile devices, the learning situation and its
effect on learners’ while using mobile devices on-the-go has not been stud-
ied in full. Contrary to the majority of available mobile learning studies
which are conducted in lab conditions, we focus on real-life situations
commonly experienced by learners while learning on-the-go. We study
the differences in MOOC learners’ performance and interactions in two
different learning situations with mobile devices: stationary learning and
learning on-the-go on the edX platform.
