Over the last decade, the needs of educational organizations have been changing in accordance with increasingly complex pedagogical models and with the technological evolution of e-learning environments with very dynamic teaching and learning requirements. This book explores state-of-the-art software architectures and platforms used to support distributed and mobile e-learning systems. Containing research from leading international experts, this advanced publication provides useful references to support learning practices for academicians, researchers, and practitioners. Contents include: (1) Developing Tools that Support Effective Mobile and Game Based Learning (Evi Chryssafidou, Sofoklis Sotiriou, Pavlos Koulouris, Manolis Stratakis, Antonis Miliarakis, Mario Barajas, Marcelo Milrad and Daniel Spikol); (2) Designing an Architecture to Provide Ubiquity in Mobile Learning (Javier Carmona-Murillo, David Cortes-Polo and Jose Gonzalez-Sanchez); (3) MobiGlam (Fatma Meawad and Geneen Stubbs); (4) SW-Architecture for Device Independent Mobile Learning (Andreas Christ and Markus Feiszt); (5) An Ubiquitous and Pervasive Learning Framework (Rodger Carroll); (6) A Mobile Service Platform for Trustworthy E-Learning Service Provisioning (Zongwei Luo and Tianle Zhang); (7) Mobile Web 2.0 (Thomas Cochrane); (8) Mobile Grids (Vassiliki Andronikou, Victor Villagra, Kleopatra Konstanteli, Antonios Litke, and Athanasia Psychogiou); (9) Intelligent M-Learning Frameworks (Hazel Owen); (10) Integrating Ontology-Based Content Management into a Mobilized Learning Environment (Gabor Kismihok, Barna Kovacs and Reka Vas); (11) Context-Awareness and Distributed Events in Mobile Learning (Ivica Boticki, Vedran Mornar and Natasa Hoic-Bozic); (12) "Intelligent Context" for Personalized Mobile Learning (Philip Moore, Bin Hu, Mike Jackson and Jizheng Wan); (13) Schools in Action (Mario Barajas, Sofoklis Sotiriou, Martin Owen and Manfred Lohr); (14) Technical Evaluation of Wireless Communications in a Mobile Learning Architecture (Javier Carmona-Murillo, Jaime Galan-Jimenez and Jose-Luis Gonzalez-Sanchez); (15) Supporting Mobile Access to VLE Resources through MobiGlam (Fatma Meawad and Geneen Stubbs); (16) Using Technology to Support Quality Learning for School Activities Involving Field Studies (K. Stewart, K. Thompson, J. Hedberg and W. Wong); and (17) Exploring Learner Identities through M-Learning (Ruth Wallace).
