Abstract: The exploration of emerging data exchange technologies and design of image-based language learning (IBLL) applications are presented in this paper. For integrating, the mobile devices to learning process the generic interfaces have been created for portable personal spaces (PoPS) providing mobile access to multimedia documents based on XML technologies. The IBLL implies image processing, recognition and retrieval, thereby some algorithms have been proposed for learning assistant applications used by mobile devices. Furthermore, for multimedia data exchange in wireless environment the compression of visual information based on wavelet transforms and several thresholding techniques are supported. The proposed approaches can suggest ways of studying and organising resources which provide long-term guidance on developing skills and support experiential learning. They have been tested for selecting the best ones with the highest processing speed and recognition grade for interpretation of Japanese kanji or Mayan glyphs on mobile devices with limited resources and restricted networking capabilities.
