    Abstract

    Mobile phones (MPs) are the raising technological tools amongst the teachers and students especially at higher educational institutions. MPs sizes and features enabled the teachers and students to use it for teaching and learning purposes to anywhere and anytime. Therefore the main purpose of this study was to explore the attitudes and possible or actual uses of mobile phones by undergraduate teachers and students in general and specifically for educational purposes. By keeping all of the features and their applications by teachers and
    students, a survey was designed to explore the andragogical experiences of university teachers and undergraduate students. The study was descriptive by nature; therefore, simple percentages, charts and Chi Square tests were used to draw the conclusion. From the results it was found that MPs are vastly being used by both teachers and students. Comparatively, students were found to be more enthusiastic than to teachers. But both believe that MPs are useful device to share teaching and learning experiences.
