This paper discusses key components in designing smart learning. The concept of smart learning emphasises the importance of technological design to make learning better. In fact, many different definitions can be found in almost all the articles that emphasise multiple aspects and characteristics of smart learning published since 2014 in the journal Smart Learning Environments. This finding illustrates the main components of smart learning to improve knowledge and develop smart learning designs. Based on the results of the literature review it was found that, there are some common and crucial elements identified by most researchers in this field. The first highlights that smart learning is technology. In addition to technology, there are other important components, that is self regulated learning, the needs and characteristics of learner, participation & feedback
