Abstract

PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to show the effectiveness of innovative mobile technologies in learning, to develop a new testing system with a mobile application and to investigate the influence of its use on the level of students’ knowledge.Design/methodology/approachModern information assessment methods of knowledge, testing, including application of mobile devices and statistical analysis tools were used in the present research.FindingsIn recent times, students are motivated to use mobile technologies in education. This paper offers one of the approaches for achieving the effective integration of mobile technologies into the learning process. The software is developed for in-class testing as a client-server and its mobile application.Practical implicationsThe practical research verified many advantages of mobile device usage during testing. It contributes to higher academic performance; in addition, it is economically advantageous as it does not require special equipment in classrooms and is psychologically comfortable for students who are accustomed to constantly using their mobile devices.Social implicationsWell-educated people play a role in the development of modern society. Mobile technologies can transform education into a seamless part of the ordinary life so that a person does not recognize it as training at all. The learning process will become more natural and easier and that will improve its quality.Originality/valueThis paper demonstrates how mobile devices can satisfy the learning expectations of students who frequently use mobile services on the Web and can attract their study interest implementing the created testing system in full-time education process.
