Mobile telecommunication technologies have influenced every aspect of our daily lives, including education. In particular, data communications over wireless service networks allow users to communicate irrespective of occasion and geographic location. Furthermore, it can be used to improve quality of academic teaching processes by providing an advanced digital route for improving students' learning performance. For instance, it allows instructors to measure student's knowledge achievement directly with interactions of entire unit, supplemented by issuing course module quiz and instant message feedback form. Advanced technologies, such as mobile multimedia client socket(e.g. Flash-lite) , data-based server let service and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), will allow further development of mobile learning content management system to monitor individual and groups' knowledge cognition achievement.
