Abstract:


The evolution and convergence of wireless technologies, mobile devices and sensors, has caused profound mutation in applications. Applications for e-learning are no exception to this trend; the mobile, ubiquitous and ambient learning have appeared next to the e-learning. Far from being simple extensions of distance learning, they pose several challenges. Most of learning content used in learning platforms are built to be consumed on broadband networks and powerful terminals. However, technological advances have allowed their consumption over low flow wireless networks, and terminals with limited resources. Consequently, there is a strong need for learning content adaptation systems. Within this article we study the learning pervasive environment that provides an access to information and activities through different context. We define the different dimensions of this context and describe our platform for dynamic adaptation of learning content that representing a brick of MADAR-Learning project.
