summary The first experience of remote education in Iran was started in 1970 by the Open University of Iran. In 1991, an e-learning site in Tehran University provided nine courses for students for the first time. Currently, the majority of Iran’s universities offer these courses. To benefit more from modern facilities and technology, recently some universities have attempted to use Mobile Learning (M-Learning) based education. One of the most important challenges which these universities encounter is the lack of digital information resources and the difficulty of preparing digital content in the Persian language. In this research, services related to M-Learning are considered along with technical impediments in the development of these services in Iran.
