This article aims to present the profile of M-Learning students, called Mobile Subject. For this, a mapping of their characteristics related to mobile learning was carried out. The study establishes a relationship between students engaged in educational activities through their mobile devices. For this purpose, questionnaires were applied to students from two undergraduate and two extension courses, characterizing research as a case study, with a qualitative-quantitative approach. The analysis consisted in the evaluation of the data, outlining the profile of the Mobile Subject by identifying four main characteristics: Speed, Connectivity, Immersion in Social Media and Multitasking and their respective elements. It is hoped that this research may contribute to new discussions about the profile of the Mobile Subject student, proposing parameters and new strategies focused on mobile learning.
