This purpose of the study is to examine the effects of mobile learning with Quick Response Code (QR code) to promote distance learners’ motivation towards the Principles of Economics. This mobile learning with QR code allowed the distance learners to learn and communicate anytime and anywhere with their peers and lecturers. A survey method was employed in this study. A set of 25 items questionnaire constructed by the researcher was used as an instrument for the study. A total of 152 distance learners from one public university in Northern Malaysia were participated in this study. The findings showed that the majority of the respondents had positive results in the questionnaire. This research can be revised to implement in secondary school or different courses of further study.
