[Full Text]



Ahmed Mohammed, Rabea Ali, Bader Aldalan



U- Learning - Creative Thinking - University Students – spreading education



U-learning provides the educational systems with many benefits and particularly the University Education but there is still a shortage of using U-learning in many universities all over the world. The current study aimed at examining the impact of the ubiquitous learning (U- Learning) in developing some creative thinking levels among university students in different specializations (the educational technology, English language, and Mathematics Majors). The significance of the study lies in three important points: first, the employment of the U- learning in the educational process. Second, this study contributed in creating new activities that might be used in developing creative thinking levels and improving the learning process. Third, this study might be seen by educators as an important method of using U- learning and its applications which might open the door for more researches. Moreover, the findings revealed that there was a positive effect for using U-learning on creative thinking levels among university students.
