The higher education provided by universities plays a fundamental role
in transforming society in all its dimensions, namely teaching and
educational management. The combination of higher education and the
increase of mobile technologies (one of the pillars of digital
transformation) leads to an increase in training opportunities and the
development of new teaching methods. Due to this, several concepts from
the e-learning, m-learning to u-learning appeared. Therefore, it is
critical to understand whether users (students and professors) are
receptive and aware to adapt to this new paradigm before deciding to
implement teaching-learning methods based on mobile technology. In this
context, the aim of this paper is to investigate the perception if the
South American universities professors are using Mobile Learning with
gamification and augmented reality apps and how they can be used to
promote student’s engagement inside and outside of the classroom, in
special to prepare the students for digital transformation.
