Ubiquitous Computing, Contextualized Learning

The projects is a joint effort of The Internal School of New Media and the Open University of Netherlands to develop a new system based on Web Service architecture and mobile technology to combine the strengths of both mobile and context aware systems and apply them to educational systems can lead to contextualised learning support.
The developed system is an extension of current systems for blogging we call contextualised blogging. The conceptual model and architecture allows users to create and manage blogs from a mobile device and combine them with identification tags and therefore leave "blog traces" in a physical environment. So far, the research group was able to develop a general framework for the contextualized blogging which includes the mobile client subsystem and the content service. An evaluation of the system has been performed during January 2007 at the Educational Technology Expertise Centre (OTEC) in the Netherlands. The evaluation system is called "Campus Memories: Learning with Contextualised Blogging".
