What are the obstacles preventing the widespread use of mobile devices for
CAA? This paper is intended to stimulate discussion on how to best introduce
mobile devices to learners, and how to provide optimal support for mobile
CAA. The discussion is an opportunity to more clearly delineate obstacles and
therefore arrive at better solutions to the challenges of mobile CAA in FE and
HE. Some of these are common to the introduction of CAA in general, others
subtly different because of the nature of the delivery platform.
