International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Life-Long Learning (IJCEELL), Vol. 14, No. 4/5, 2004

Abstract: The paper presents the guidelines and first findings of a project of three Italian universities (Bologna, Siena and Trento) which aim is to offer personalisation services in a mobile learning platform. The integration of a recommendation system that suggests educational resources to students improves the user's adaptivity and personalisation. Technological aspects of this integration are illustrated. Besides, the extensions of a Learning Management System for mobile learning are presented, including services for the mobile users of the system. The project has its foundations in the availability of significant experience on e-learning real processes, and on the availability of an e-learning system developed in previous projects and currently used by different faculties.
