Misconceptions about mLearning

I thought it would be great to start a blog post about misconceptions that you've come across about mLearning that you would like to share.  To kick this off here's what I've heard a lot:

"you can't even begin to look at mLearning until everyone has an iPad (or other tablet)"

You can indeed start to look (and implement!) a load of mLearning options.  Good mLearning is not device  dependent - good mLearning (like all learning) is based on a solid needs analysis, a solid learner analysis, and working with what you have that works in the environmental context that you need it to work in.  Sometimes it will be an iPad, other times it might be a Walkman and a Palm Pilot (yeah I know, I purposely picked "antiquated" technologies just to make a point)

mLearning is not just eLearning on a mobile device.
