Abstract

To further study the context-aware learning approach, the current study, based on the technology of iBeacon and WeChat “Shake Nearby”, built a contextaware learning system on fitness equipment and fitness knowledge. The study designed a controlled experiment and related interviews to evaluate the effectiveness and superiority of the context-aware learning. Results showed that the experimental group learning by the context-aware system had a high level of technology acceptance, and a slightly higher level of learning grades and learning motivation and a slightly lower level of the cognitive load than the control group. It could be seen that context-aware learning could help students study fitness equipment using and fitness knowledge more effective and pleasant than ordinary paper study materials.
