A Contextualized System for Supporting Active Learning

The dynamics of the world today demands a change in traditional education paradigms to enable the creation of more efficient learning environments, where students will learn more effectively and will play a more active role in their education. They should interact with the knowledge at anytime-anywhere. In order to tackle this problem we should take advantage of mobile communication devices (e.g., smartphones and tablets) which are widely used by students and which have excellent processing storage and connectivity capabilities. In this research work, a context-aware system stimulating active learning by students was developed. This system places the student in an intelligent learning environment and is capable of delivering appropriate context-related learning contents, based on location, time, date, interaction of the student, profile of the student, and so on. Within its architecture, the system includes reasoning capability that using context-based ontology is able to deliver efficient learning resources. The experimental results obtained from various learning experiences in nursery, medicine, and systems engineering support the validity of our approach.
