The use of Mobile Technologies opens new possibilities for the teaching and learning processes, taking us to a new reality, called Mobile Learning or m-Learning. The m-learning in this work is defined" as learning processes that occur, necessarily supported by the use of mobile technologies and that has mobility as a fundamental characteristic of human actors, who may be physically / geographically distant from other actors and also the physical spaces of formal education, such as classrooms, training rooms or the workplace" [1], [6]. It is author's intention to alert the academic community of the features in using M-Learning. We feel the need to develop of applications that use this type of technology, ensuring that education be accessible to all. The present work conducts a research of mobile learning as a tool to support education in higher Institutions. At same time, the authors of the present work investigated existing solutions, which have been using advanced mobile technologies to support learning process with emphasis in the use of mobile devices and they analyzed practical implications of design and education when they come into mobile virtual learning environments. A education software was developed to support the students in learning. To evaluate the system, we used the framework QEF (Quality Evaluation Framework) and we done a questionnaire.
