The Benefits and Potential of Innovative Ubiquitous Learning Environments to Enhance Higher Education Infrastructure and Student Experiences in Saudi Arabia

Mohammed S. Zahrani

Abstract:
The concept of ubiquitous learning has become an important topic and a breakthrough in the field of education. This study conducts an investigation of esteemed literature regarding the optimization of effectiveness and efficiency in ubiquitous learning environments, through the integration of RFID and wireless technologies (including near field communication), in a sole service network. Also, the study demonstrates and analyzes the usefulness of current applications implemented to create ubiquitous learning environments, while considering the potential of new relationships with technologies and with the environment to facilitate the evolution of the technology with superior performance. Innovative relationships are considered by the author in analyzing the literature while relating the developments to possibilities (assuming money is no object). The emphasis is a university environment. The study mostly emphasizes the benefits of the development and integration of such a sophisticated technological learning environment. Meanwhile, the target audience is both the undergraduate and graduate-level members in the fields of education, such as computer sciences, Information Technology (IT), engineering technologies, or other hybrid fields. This study is to include considerations in the development and application for security protocols to be deployed in the network towards a ubiquitous computing network within a university campus, while the security protocols are to define a set of innovative services to the network users. This study highlights both the theory and technology behind the Ubiquitous Learning Environment (ULE). The ULE allows for great potential in a university environment to conduct activities which meet their academic or other informational mission statements and organizational objectives.
