Nowadays, mobile learning is anticipated as an important instructional device that provides students with the opportunity of being involved in learning and teaching environments whenever and wherever they want. Thus, mobile learning will turn into being one of the most significant environments of distance instruction. The purpose of this study is to analyze perceptions of Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) undergraduate IT students for mobile learning, particularly in terms of effectiveness and expectations. Furthermore, negative and positive perceptions of the students on how mobile learning is being used and whether it enhances learning are assessed through questionnaires. This study is designed as quantitative research. For this purpose, close-ended items are conducted as a data collection method. The outcome of the study indicated that students are interested in new technology devices since it provides them with an adaptive and interactive instructional environment and gives them the opportunity to take the best use of their time and find their own learning style. Hence, it caters the theory that mobile learning could be a good alternative for learning and easy to use
