Mobile Learning in Context â?? Context-aware Hypermedia in the Wild

Frank Allan Hansen, Niels Olof Bouvin


Modern project-based education requires students to be able to work with digital materials both in and out of the classroom. Field trips are often an integral part of such projects and greatly benefit studentsâ?? learning by allowing them to engage with real-world environments first-hand. However, the infrastructure for accessing context sensitive information and supporting in-situ authoring by students while in the field is often lacking. In this paper we present the HyCon framework for mobile, context-aware, and multi-platform hypermedia that aims at supporting several aspects of fieldtrips and project-based education.
