1) A Collaborative Mobile Virtual Campus System Based on Location-Based Dynamic Grouping This paper presents a collaborative mobile learning system: Mobile Virtual Campus (MVC) powered by the location-based dynamic grouping algorithm. The MVC system has been developed to provide an innovative and interactive platform for online mobile learners by utilizing the location awareness and other built-in sensory components in mobile devices. On the platform, the mobile learners can learn collaboratively and interactively either at a distance or face-to-face in the mobile learning environment. Within the MVC, the mobile learners can share the learning experiences with their peers just like in a traditional classroom. 2) Multi-Object Oriented Augmented Reality for Location-based Adaptive Mobile Learning Mobile learning can be conducted anytime and anywhere. It provides the opportunity for mobile learners to learn collaboratively while they are online and in the mobile learning environment. Utilizing a mobile device’s location awareness capability within mobile learning applications has become available. Although the GPS may not be accurate enough because in the location-based mobile learning environment, there might be a lot of learning objects in a single location, and each object has its specific learning contents belong. This research aims to bring up a strategy called Multi-Object Oriented Augmented Reality, based on the Augmented Reality technique and the location of Mobile Learning Objects, which allows learner to see the suitable learning contents superimposed upon the specific learning objects and enhance the interactive in a mobile learning environment. The three characteristics of this new approach; Learning-Object Oriented, Guidance ability and highly interactive will enhance the learners’ knowledge as more adaptable, accurate, personalized and interesting as possible.
