Abstract: Ubiquitous learning (U-Learning) environments collect context information relative to user's preferences and needs, but this information is typically very volatile. On this basis, the Quality of the Context aims at treating this information with the application of the quality parameters. This paper presents a ubiquitous virtual environment, in which three modules (U-SEA, SEDECA and QoC) were developed and integrated with Moodle, and describes the use of a Bootstrap theme to automatically adapt the interface on mobile devices. The results about the integrated modules showed that the UVLEQoC environment operated satisfactorily, based on the assessments made by the group of users who tested the modules and their operation.

Keywords: u-learning; ubiquitous learning; QoC; quality of context; Moodle; mobile adaptation; mobile devices; mobile interfaces; virtual learning environments; VLEs; e-learning; electronic learning; online learning; m-learning; mobile learning.
