Investigating RFID Enabled Devices in Smart Electronic Learning Environments

Mohamed Soliman, Sghaier Guizani


For e-learning systems to be successful, proper understanding of the learner is crucial. This can be done with the use of learnersâ?? profiles. However, there is a need for the availability of such information for mobile learning environments to make it available when the learner roams between different spaces. This paper investigates the application of RFID technologies for this use. We suggest using new advancements in RFID technologies with smart tags to identify and extract learnersâ?? data/profile in the move. Furthermore, the learner will be carrying this data for better learning interoperability in smart spaces. New interesting educational scenarios are becoming available to provide context-awareness for the educational process. The tradeoffs between the availability of further information and privacy are discussed.
