Abstract
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.
