In this work, we propose a method of constructing a platform that makes learning contents on the Web "Anti-Ubiquitous", resolve the problem of halting study by "ubiquity" in WBL(Web-based learning) and make WBL more effective and beneficial. "Anti-Ubiquitous" that we have proposed is an opposite concept of "Ubiquitous" and means to add constraints to the location and time in "Ubiquitous". Anti-Ubiquitous learning based on the concept increases the awareness and level of concentration of learners and promotes effective and substantive learning. However, it is not efficient for each teacher to create Anti-Ubiquitous learning contents from scratch. Therefore, we propose a method to make existing learning contents on the Web "Anti- Ubiquitous". Currently, since high-quality learning contents such as OCW and MOOC already exist on the Web, the significance of our approach is great.
