However, the provision of tablet PCs to students may not be a panacea for quality learning, especially, to technological disadvantaged rural student population. The aim of study was to investigate the use of digital mobile devices for enhancing teaching and learning at the University of Venda. The research questions focused on determining the current level of use of mobile devices how they can be used effectively for teaching and learning. Mixed methods approach was applied with data being solicited from a convenient sample of students, lecturers and an IT technician. The results of the study indicated that many students and lecturers are active and have higher perceptions of mobile devices usage. The results of the study are to be used to explicate and advance the integration of the mobile devices for promoting learning and teaching accomplishments.
