The diffusion of the use of the learning virtual environments presents a great potential for the development of an application which meet the necessities in the education area. In view of the importance of a more dynamic application and that can adapt itself continuously to the students' necessities, the "U-ALS" (Ubiquitous Adapted Learning System) was proposed and developed. This system was built based on the learning virtual environment Moodle and on the Module Mle-Moodle, available in a Cloud Computing infrastructure and it has as a main purpose the adaption to the student's computational context, glimpsing technical characteristics like the environment adequacy to the user's speed connection. The obtained results show the feasibility of working with systems that are sensitive to the context, bringing improvements in the students' access to the materials and tools. (Contains 3 figures.)
