Abstract

This paper explores a context-aware and personalization method in Mobile Learning system based on ubiquitous learning logs. Ubiquitous learning log stands for the log of knowledge or learning experience acquired ubiquitously. We construct a ubiquitous learning log system called SCROLL (System for Capturing and Reminding of Learning Log). Our research focuses on helping learners recall what they have learned making use of the learning contexts and learners' learning habits. Our measures consist of three main actions, which are to recommend learning objects in accordance with both learners' needs and contexts, to detect their learning habits using the context history and to prompt them to review what they have learned regarding their learning habits. What's more, by monitoring learners' reaction on the recommendation or prompting, the system can improve its prediction. An experiment was conducted to evaluate SCROLL and our method. The results of the experiment demonstrate that the learners benefited from the system and the context based recommendation and learning habit based prompting also motivated them to study more.
