From e-learning to m-learning, mobile learning is going to be the next wave of learning environment. But many issues regarding mobile learning have not exhaustively been covered. This paper focuses on implementing learning module issues regarding m-learning using a simple case study. Although most typical e-learning systems encompass some sort of assessment components, most existing systems are tailored toward PC based web access and are not customized toward mobile user and mobile devices such as PDA. In addition, the content developed in most of these systems is not standardized, making reuse rather difficult. We discuss here an architecture and prototype of a mobile learning system. The system performs adaptation based on the device and user profiles. The system therefore works on both PC and mobile platforms. The paper also describes the underlying multidimensional competency framework, which is used to develop the prototype mobile learning system described in this paper.
