Self-regulated students are able to create and maximize opportunities they have for studying or learning. We combine this learning approach with our Mobile Context-aware and Adaptive Learning Schedule (mCALS) tool which will create and enhance opportunities for students to study or learn in different locations. The learning schedule is used for two purposes, a) to help students organize their work and facilitate time management, and b) for capturing the users’ activities which can be retrieved and translated as learning contexts later by our tool. These contexts are then used as a basis for selecting
appropriate learning materials for the students.
Using a learning schedule to capture and retrieve
contexts is a novel approach in the context-awareness
mobile learning field. In this paper, we present the
conceptual model and preliminary architecture of our
mCALS tool, as well as our research questions and
methodology for evaluating it. The learning materials
we intend to use for our tool will be Java for novice
programmers. We decided that this would be appropriate because large amounts of time and motivation are necessary to learn an object-oriented programming language such as Java, and we are currently seeking ways to facilitate this for novice programmers.
