Recently, as ubiquitous technology has been developed rapidly, a specific application service considering users’ situations has been becoming the focus of attention. As a field of a typical situation-based application, we focus on situated learning using a mobile device. A u-learning system can provide learners with individualized learning at any time in any place. In this paper, we propose a general-purpose mobile framework suitable for situated learning on PDA with RFID mobile system. Specially, we examine three aspects in making the framework. First, we investigate how learners obtain and access customized learning contents suitable for them. Second, we construct a mobile middleware for RFID on PDA. Finally, we devise the application-specific system for situated learning.
