This paper describes a new learning paradigm, known as ubiquitous learning or u-learning, which is supported by the ubiquitous computing technologies. Instead of that, the paper also aims at providing particular information related to u-learning for researchers who are interested in venturing this new area of ubiquitous computing. The u-learning definition and characteristics are compared and discussed in proposing a conclusive definition of u-learning together with its characterization. Finally, some of the u-learning applications are explained to further enhance the understanding of u-learning concept.
