The emerging use of mobile and portable devices in education has potential to motivate new approaches to learning and the prospects of implementing m-learning are already obvious and are public knowledge through many research articles. However, the challenges of adopting m-learning in Nigerian universities are enormous. Apart from security issues that have been thoroughly examined in previous studies, this paper identifies and discusses other barriers and challenges being encountered when implementing m-learning, by means of a comprehensive review and survey study carried out in selected Universities in Nigeria. Questionnaires and interviews were the primary instruments used for data collection in identifying the enabling and deterring factors affecting the adoption of m-learning. The results of the study revealed that the m-learning barriers in Nigeria include regulatory issues, school curricula, inadequate funding, lack of infrastructure, over-dependence on mobile technology, attitude and fear, as well as political issues. This paper analyses and discusses the results in detail and concludes by making appropriate recommendations.
