Nowadays, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) take advantage of new technologies to facilitate learners’ experience away from the traditional style of learning for their learning experience. The blended learning approach is a widely adopted approach used by HEIs to disseminate knowledge to their learners. The HEI approach in Oman provides blended e-learning with a video streaming server in combination with Moodle. Students faced issues accessing the material; also, faculty cannot use the video interactions about their learning experience. This study aims to develop a mobile application, "eDify," to enhance the video streaming server’s existing infrastructure. Furthermore, usability analysis of the mobile application with the learning experience of the students. The current study would reveal the variables that are critical to effective technology-based learning of the students. The implications generated through the study would allow the institution involved in the study to effectively implement the variables required for enhanced teaching and learning with the use of a mobile application. The methodology used in the study was an exploratory study combined with a survey as a quantitative method through the mobile application. Principal component analysis and a range of regression analyses are conducted to test the relationships between the independent and the dependent variable, "learning experience." Results suggest that the usability variables positively and significantly affect the learning experience’s dependent variable.
