The Impact of Social Presence on Learners' Satisfaction in Mobile Learning



Distributing learning completely through mobile courses is a new trend. Social presence has been identified as a significant predictor of learner satisfaction with online learning. It is a key element that improves learner satisfaction with online learning (Cobb, 2009; Reio & Crim, 2013). This study explores whether social presence is inherent in the mobile learning environment.  Results revealed that social presence was a significant predictor in learners' satisfaction as were gender and number of courses learners had previously experienced.
