Commission in the ﬁeld of mobile technologies research, explores new
ways to use mobile environments to meet the needs of learners, working
by themselves and with others and using state-of-the-art mobile devices. A
new m-learning architecture will support creation, brokerage, delivery and
tracking of learning and information contents, using ambient intelligence,
location-dependence, personalization, multimedia, instant messaging (text,

(as part of formal courses); «adventitious, location-dependent learning»

substantial at European level, and will be realised quickly because of the
involvement of key actors. These include public bodies, mobile operators,
software and learning technologies production companies, mobile devices
manufacturers, publishers and content providers, and participants in
