M-learning is a mohile technology in learning and teaching which also another extension to the conventional learning practice specifically e-learning. Mostly, accessing of resources in e-learning is done through fixed nodes such as notebook and desktop PC which generally are restricted either by location, time or both. Through m-learning, accessing to learning resources is independent of time and location. Therefore, this study emphasizes on developing m-learning application for Basic Computer Architectnre for supporting teaching and learning process. The application involves modules for notes, flash card and quiz which enables u5er to learn fundamental topics of the course b y using mohile devices while offline. Prototype model is used as the development methodology. This m-learning application has been developed using JAVA prograrmning language specifically JZME MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.1. Netheans IDE was used to design the interface. As a result, this prototype is expected to be as an alternative learning material which enables user to learn fundamental topics in Basic Computer Architecture course included Basic Structure of Computer, Basic Processing Unit, Arithmetic Unit, and Memory System.
