Abstract
E-learning systems have increased the prevalence of information and computer technologies in education. U-learning is a modern teaching system based on the use of computer technologies (ubiquitous computing technology) everywhere in the environment of existing wired, wireless, mobile, and sensor systems. The interaction between information, object/device, and user/learner/student is formed at any time, anywhere, and form in the communication environment called u-environment. In u-learning, the presence of information in objects (embeded) and mobility is the highest. Training services are among mobile systems and sensors that can move independently in the environment. The status of the learners is followed due to the characteristics of the server systems and objects. Researches on u-learning are ongoing. Especially u-learning system theory and application methods are being investigated. Most of the researches are about u-learning applications rather than u-learning framework. This chapter focuses on basic features, media, and research in the transition from e-learning to u-learning.
