Abstract: Ubiquitous learning applications for smartphones and tablet computer devices have penetrated Higher Education (HE) market. At the same time as universities are investing in new technologies, they also look into cost reduction strategies, including cloud computing. We draw upon a study of a successful migration to mobile virtual environment and effective use of cloud computing in different universities in the Philippines. Success factors and challenges of these emerging technologies in HE are discussed. The paper concludes with the consideration of student understanding implications and research questions which needs addressing in the area of ubiquitous learning. This article concludes with some discussion and proposals for future work.
