Consideration of the availability of learning resources, or the ability of mobile learners to find information, is not enough when defining mobile and ubiquitous learning approaches. This limited consideration could play a role in blending both learning approaches as they assist the mobile learners. Moreover, the essential requirements for mobile learners may be overlooked by this consideration and consequently, mobile learners may be affected negatively. In this paper, mobile and ubiquitous learning are compared from the view of the nature of interaction between learners and computers. This comparison will provide a close picture of the potential of these learning approaches and the differences between their environments. Furthermore, it plays a crucial role in achieving a level where the different design requirements to facilitate the learning for learners in m-learning and u-learning environments are realised and understood.
