An increasing desire to port learning objects on mobile phones exists. However, there is limited understanding on how to pedagogically obtain access to and use learning objects on mobile phones. The limited understanding is caused by a dearth in frameworks for underpinning the development of mobile learning objects applications. Following Design Research methodology, we developed a Mobile Learning Objects Deployment and Utilisation Framework (MoLODUF) to address this problem. MoLODUF is composed of twelve dimensions, including: MLearning Objects, MLearning Device, MLearning Interface, MLearning Connectivity, MLearning Process, MLearning Costs, MLearning Resources, MLearning Context, MLearning Pedagogy, MLearning Ethics, MLearning Policy and MLearning Evaluation. The MoLODUF makes significant extensions to existing electronic and mLearning frameworks. It provides a competency set of guidelines for developing and/or evaluating applications for deploying and utilising learning objects on mobile phones.
