Recent progress in wireless and sensor technologies has lead to a new development of mobile learning, which is able to sense the situation of learners and provide adaptive supports in the authentic environment. Researchers call such feature “context awareness”, and have been investigating the development of new mobile learning environments; nevertheless, the methodologies and applications for conducting effective learning activities in such environments have not yet been well discussed and demonstrated. This special issue aims to enhance mobile learning a step further from learning at anytime anywhere to be at the right time and the right place with right learning resources and right learning peers by applying the context-aware technologies.
