Abstract

In the past decade, mobile learning (ML) has been a widely discussed issue in the globe. However, the ML there is a lack of systematic review on the trend of mobile learning in medical education (ME). In this paper, a systematic review was conducted to analyze the ML in ME articles published in international journals from 1998 to 2019 from the aspects of application domains, subjects, adopted learning strategies and research foci. The review results reveal that the advancement of mobile technology has led to the increment of ML in ME studies; moreover, the research foci of the studies have become more and more diverse. It is also found that ML is mainly used for basic medical knowledge and skill training as well as supporting medical decision making. In addition, several ML strategies, such as inquiry-based learning, situated mobile learning, computers as Mindtools, game-based learning, and synchronized knowledge sharing, are rarely adopted in ME. This implies that most research focused on skills training and basic knowledge delivering, while learners' high-order thinking skills were not sufficiently taken into account. On the other hand, it is found that the number of studies using questionnaires for issue investigating is increased in recent years. Furthermore, most studies reported learners' cognitive performances and learning perceptions, while their learning behaviors were rarely investigated. Accordingly, this study proposes the research trends and potential research issues of ML in ME, which can be a reference of researchers, instructors, and policy makers of ME.
