Abstract Implementing a mobile wireless innovation in a university context where learning spaces are very traditional, approaches to learning generally are focused on knowledge transmission, and where little or no wireless infrastructure exists, provided some major challenges. In this case study these challenges are analysed using a qualitative research based approach, Soft Systems Methodology. This analysis highlighted the importance of considering the technological affordances of the mobile devices used, culturalissues of change management within traditional academic contexts and logistical considerations where pragmatism plays a key role.
