Abstract

Context aware ubiquitous access is an interactive model between the context of learners and the content in ubiquitous learning environments. We envision that providing context aware learning content is the first step toward ubiquitous learning by finding right collaborative learners, right learning content and right learning services in the right place at the right time. The major contributions of this paper are the development of our context model and context acquisition, We have developed a context model to formally describe and acquire contextual information pertaining to learners and learning content. Based on this model, we have constructed a context acquisition mechanism for intelligent learning content discovery and access based on learners' surrounding context.
