Mobile devices have been successfully used in facilitating learning in informal education. In the study reported on here, we propose designing mobile based informal learning in the domain of agriculture to aware farmers on better farming practice. Thus, learning is referred to as in-situ practice of agriculture compared to traditional classroom learning. The facilitation of communication and interaction among farmers and other stakeholders is important to foster informal learning. Accordingly interactive mobile-learning environments can encourage participatory attitudes, excite interest and commitment among learners and thus become important in adult learning.
