A rather new tendency in distance learning is the usage of mobile and wireless technologies to support learners and educators. In this paper we present an architecture, where the functionalities of e-learning platform are presented as Web services and on top of it a mobile learning management system is taking the responsibilities of adapting those services for the mobile users and for providing additional mobile specific services. Such a system should have three main functionalities - "context discovery", "mobile content management and adaptation" and "packaging and synchronization".

Abstract

A rather new tendency in distance learning is the usage of mobile and wireless technologies to support learners and educators. In this paper we present an architecture, where the functionalities of e-learning platform are presented as Web services and on top of it a mobile learning management system is taking the responsibilities of adapting those services for the mobile users and for providing additional mobile specific services. Such a system should have three main functionalities - "context discovery", "mobile content management and adaptation" and "packaging and synchronization".
