Abstract: Mobile learning applications utilise the advantages of mobile technologies to increase learning opportunities, mainly on an anytime, anywhere basis. The advancement of mobile technology has facilitated the development of numerous applications to improve students' learning experience and performance. Successful implementation of m-learning is highly dependent on learning context and environment awareness. This work presents a multiphase exploration of early phases responsible for defining and validating the m-learning context, and later phases based on context validation results achieved from the previous phases, involving the development and evaluation of a new m-learning context prototype. This new prototype proved to provide context-aware and ubiquitous learning services fulfilling several diverse user interaction levels and requirements.

Keywords: mobile learning; m-learning; m-learning system; e-learning; context factors; ubiquitous learning; collaborative learning; mobile learning system prototype; learning context; context aware ubiquitous learning.
