Navigation Mechanism in Blended Context-Aware Ubiquitous Learning Environment
In recent years, navigation support problems have been discussed and investigated in ubiquitous learning environment. Several researches have proven that students can perform better when navigation supports are provided by learning systems. However, traditional ubiquitous learning environments suffer from some physical limitations. For example, the capacities of learning targets are limited and/or moving times for reaching learning targets are required. To address these limitations and create a more efficient ubiquitous learning environment, a novel learning framework, namely the blended ubiquitous learning environment, is proposed. A blended navigation algorithm, B-MONS, is also proposed for developing a navigation support mechanism which suits the new learning framework. Experimental results show that students learn in the blended navigation environment with the help of B-MONs get higher learning performance.
