Abstract:This research proposes a context‐aware framework that automatically adapts learning content designed for personal computers for mobile learners. The framework is a web application plug‐in that captures access patterns and uses the patterns with trained configurations, learner preferences and device profiles to tailor learning content to the learners' needs. Learners can switch devices without losing learning context, and the framework would use Semantic technology to search and make content learners may eventually need available to them. The framework is in line with the surveys recently conducted on mobile learning and uses only proven technologies to guarantee a successful implementation.
