Mobile environments constitute an important and promising direction of e-learning. Besides developing suitable network infrastructures (wireless networks, ad hoc networks, peer-to-peer technology, etc.), it is essential to design learning systems for such infrastructures and vari-ous new types of mobile devices (PDAs, tablet PCs, etc.). In addition to the above areas, our ap-proach featuring distributed cooperative knowledge spaces specifically addresses conceptual issues pertaining to the transition from classical, server-centred to mobile, distributed learning environments. Here, we distinguish between persistent and personal knowledge spaces. We also introduce the concept of so-called temporary knowledge areas and groups. We are able to draw here on many years of experience in the development and testing of our concept of cooperative knowledge spaces.
