After centuries of little change, the teaching and learning in Thai universities is on the verge of taking a giant leap forward. New and emerging pedagogies are harnessing the power of Internet and communication technologies (ICT) at a very fast pace. New trends in eLearning and mLearning are bringing about dramatic changes in the higher educational landscape, transforming the breadth, depth, quality and opportunities for learning from anywhere for any one and at any time. In spite of the fact that a large number of students own and use mobile devices there is a very little use of the various sophisticated features of this wireless technology in education. This paper is based on a recent survey conducted at Assumption University of Thailand to gauge the opinion of students about usage of mobile devices for their education. Using the results of the survey this paper investigates into the expectations of students in Assumption University for enhanced ICT services for mobile devices. It also provides two recommendations for improving student services for mobile devices at Assumption University.
