With the development of wireless network and embedded system, the Ubiquitous Computing technology has been applied in learning domain, which is called Ubiquitous Learning (U-Learning). We proposed the Frame-based Interaction and Learning Model (FILM) framework to model the context-aware applications of U-Learning for the construction, maintainability and extensibility issues. The FILM contains context-aware frame layer (lower layer) and U-Learning activity script (higher layer). In lower layer, the context information and event process are handled by frame structure and the slot attachment, and the relations of context frames are managed by the context ontology. In higher layer, the sequence of frames are combined as the context-aware services and represented by the XML-based U-Learning Activity Script and High Level Petri Net is applied for events flow control and activities sequence construction. Finally, a context-aware scenario is described and modeled by FILM.
