The aim of this study was to evaluate whether mobile access to learning resources would enhance the students’ learning experience on a sport science course. Seven video demonstrations of laboratory experiments were filmed and then loaded onto iPod Touch devices. The same videos were also made available through the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) so that they could also be accessed via desktop/laptop computers. The group of students who were given the iPods were asked to login to the VLE using these wi-fi enabled devices and access additional learning resources. This article briefly presents the background research in the area of mobile learning. The research methods employed for the pilot study are then explained, the students’ feedback is analyzed in detail and the pilot is evaluated.
