Today, thanks to the development of mobile technologies, mobile learning has become widespread. New methods of mobile learning have emerged; we have heard lately by the flipped classroom. This method involves reversing the task traditionally performed in class with the task traditionally performed at home. When we talk about mobile learning, we are talking about a learner who learns in a mobile context and in different situations. Hence, the need for adapting educational content and contextual mobile learning becomes critical. Several research studies have been performed taking into account the context notion. According to our research few scientific works have been proposed taking into account the context in the flipped classroom. In this paper, we present the model of our approach, called Smart Enhanced Context-Aware for Flipped Mobile Learning: SECA-FML. This approach takes into account the different context dimensions in order to provide learners with a content format adapted to their contexts.
