This study argues that mobile learning delivers education more affordably, accessibly and effectively than the traditional model of delivering education, which further deprives the poor in Africa. The traditional model of education denoted in this study refers to the model of education that gives high regard for location and the formality of education with its additional services and costs. This model facilitates edu-flation. Three case studies were used to validate this argument.
