Abstract: The challenge of experimenting with new mobile technological innovations for teaching and learning is a constant factor for teachers at universities. This paper examines some important features that mobile phone Apps can bring to the learning environment, and how these features are crucial to education. But are teachers ready to apply these Apps in their daily professional work. Are they prepared to integrate them? The role of teachers in today’s learning environment is also discussed. The re-blend of educational Apps are described and how this can serve the emerging mobile learning process and delivery needs of the learning community. This will provide a well balanced learning environment that meets the current digital learners’ needs and supports learning experiences that are collaborative, portable, flexible and accessible, and can be integrated with the world globally, beyond the traditional classroom.
