In recent years, many efforts have been undertaken in order to design and deploy learning activities that make use ofmodern mobile devices, like smartphones and tablet PC’s. Hence, new possibilities for supporting these so-called mobilelearning scenarios have risen. One of the major benefits of these kinds of learning scenarios is the possibility of a learnerto have access to learning content independent of time and place and therefore, enabling learners to learn in very differentsituations. In order to support learning across different settings, this paper discusses an approach that allows identifying abest fitting format of a Learning Object (LO) with respect to the current situation of the learner. This approach allows todelivering learning content in a format that may suit the current context of the learner and therefore, it enables seamlesslearning.
