A review of mobile learning research shows that studies take various research approaches and apply a varied number of research methods, ranging from primarily quantitative and experimental to purely qualitative and descriptive. This paper presents a classification framework to position mobile learning studies. A number of studies, related to mobile language learning, are classified according to this framework. It is argued that mobile learning research would profit from a hybrid
approach in which qualitative and quantitative research methods are combined.
