This paper presents M2Learn framework as an open platform, which facilitates the development of mobile learning and ubiquitous applications. The main features of this framework are: transparent management of multiple location-based technologies including GPS and cell towers; identification of objects through RFID; support for motion sensors (e.g., G-Sensor); interoperability with Moodle e-learning platform; and support for widely accepted e-learning standards, including LOM for learning objects, and IMS-QTI for assessment. To demonstrate the benefits of the M2Learn system, a MobileTwitter microblogging application had been developed.
