Context-Sensitive Content Representation for Mobile Learning
Mobile learning means that the learning contents can be displayed anytime, anywhere, and with any kind of presenting device. Learning Content Management Systems (LCMSs) usually provide convenient authoring tools to help instructors to construct their learning contents, which may include static document such as powerpoint, word, pdf document and dynamic multimedia document such as video and audio files, and then integrate these learning contents to provide learners with proper contents rendering through access devices. However, most of LCMSs are based on desktop computer environments, rather than mobile devices. Context-Sensitivity is an application of software system’s ability to sense and analyze context from various sources. In this paper, we develop a Context-Sensitive Middleware (CSM) for LCMS to transform the same learning contents to different mobile devices, so mobile learning can be supported.
