This comprehensive paper delves into two vital facets of contemporary higher education. The first segment investigates the transformative force of mobile learning (m-learning), elucidating its far-reaching impact on the educational landscape. Offering unprecedented flexibility and accessibility, m-learning redefines the dynamics between students and educators. The exploration navigates through potential benefits, challenges, and broader implications, providing a nuanced understanding of the evolving landscape of higher education in the digital age. The second segment focuses on the impact of active teaching in a first-year class at the National Engineering School of Carthage (ENICarthage) in Tunisia. Active teaching, recognized for engaging students in the learning process, is scrutinized for its effectiveness in enhancing theoretical understanding and graded assignment performance. This research introduces a dynamic dimension by incorporating mobile learning and tutorials as integral components of active teaching strategies. With its technological leverage, mobile learning aims to enhance student engagement, while advanced tutorials feature simulation functionality for an immersive learning experience. Through statistical analysis, the paper contributes to a nuanced comprehension of the positive influence of active teaching on academic achievements, offering practical insights into the application of active teaching methods and their potential benefits for enhancing student learning outcomes. This synthesis thus presents a holistic view of the dynamic interplay between mobile learning and active teaching in shaping the contemporary higher education landscape.
