Abstract

The advances of modern technology and learning on educational focus are shifting gradually from electronic learning to ubiquitous learning. Ubiquitous learning (Ulearning)
seeks to embed small computing devices such as sensors, actuators, RFID tags, cell phones and PDAs into our daily learning so as to provide learners with learning contents and services that can be accessible anywhere, anytime with the appropriate interface. This paper describes the design of an adaptive and personalized Ubiquitous Learning middleware and the key components of a U-learning environment that can support the handicapped learners in higher education in developing countries of Africa.
