Abstract: To encourage university students to take computer-programming courses, this study proposes a personalised ubiquitous learning support system based on multiple sources of personalised information. Two groups (experimental and control) of low-achieving students were recruited in this study. The 26 students in the control group used the conventional learning support system, while the 28 students in the experimental group learned with the proposed system. The groups were compared in terms of their computer-programming learning performance. The experimental group's attitudes towards the proposed system and the relationship between their attitudes and learning performance regarding the proposed system were also investigated. The results show that the students who learned with the proposed system had better learning performance than those who learned with the conventional system, and had a positive attitude towards the proposed system.
