Abstract

With the evolution of the Internet era in today’s world, more and more learners now have the option of using multimedia to engage in a learning environment forexamplevideos, text,picturesetc.Theyalsoprefe morecontrolovertheir learning sessions, i.e. being able to choose which topics, which mode of multimedia etc., as that is one thing which classroom learning cannot provide. Classroom learn ingdoesnotgivethefreedomofchoosingapace,alearningstyleorasuitable medium for learning. Moreover, the existing teaching methods does not encourage from exploring other possible means of learning which could turn out to be more helpful. Also, classroom learning or learning over the Internet, most learners are stillnotwellawareoftheirlearningstyles.Inthispaper,anapproachisproposedto develop a Mobile Learning Android application which implements a learning style model to identify the learning styles of each user. Based on the identified learning style as well as the user’s other in-app activities, it uses a recommendation system to recommend relevant course material to the user which s/he might find useful.

This mobile learning application provides seamless availability of course material to the learners on the go.
