Abstract

Abstract Mobile and Wireless technologies has been used in various areas, and it
begins to have a huge impact on how education takes place in several disciplines.
This technology has improved considerably, making mobile devices extraordinarily
suitable and reasonable and M-Learning a reality. Wireless Response System
(WRS) is a developed generation of Student Response System (SRS). It uses
devices that enable students and trainers to provide definite responses to many
questions during the lesson with an immediate feedback to the students about their
level of knowledge and understanding. However teaching in Arabic language need
some specific features which have been included in the existing WRS and the steps
of implementing them are considered in this paper. The developed version of WRS
seeks to increase the users’ interactions and engagement through adding a new
function to WRS which is Arabic language. Nevertheless, some universities and
institutes in Arab world signed strategic corporations with mobile service providers to
start this type of services for their education branches.. This paper contains an
analysis of ICT penetration and the level of m-learning environments in Arabic
countries.
