dc.description.abstractMobile learning is a fast growing form of technology-based learning. The novelty of mobile learning means educators are trying to understand how to develop instruction for this technological medium. A Delphi study was conducted using a panel comprised of 30 members with expert knowledge across 20 states to determine the competencies needed to develop instructional strategies for mobile learning. The panelists were given a definition of mobile learning developed from a literature review. In the first round, they were asked to list six competencies needed to develop instructional strategies for mobile learning from this definition. In the second round, the panelists were asked to rate 108 statements on a six-point scale. After a three round Delphi, the expert panel reached consensus on 48 competencies needed to develop instructional strategies for mobile learning. The competencies were grouped into seven areas: Communication, Technology, Learning, Course Management and Policies, Course Content, Assessment and Evaluation, and Instructor Skills. Further development of these skills through professional development is recommended, as well as research into creating a framework for mobile learning instruction using these competencies. .en
