Abstract: 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 ulearning 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.
