Abstract: Currently, the mobility of users who carry mobile devices and access resources through wireless networks brings up the need of providing uniform and immediate access to their information. In this scenario, a new model of education called ubiquitous learning is being explored. Therefore, the educational processes are related to the situation involving the learner (i.e., they are context-aware), allowing the access to educational resources to be adapted according to his/her profile and context. GlobalEdu is a computing environment that aims to support ubiquitous learning, being aware of the context and mobility of the learners. This paper presents the GlobalEdu content management model, as well as its model of interoperability among repositories of learning objects that are used throughout the educational processes carried in the system.
