    Abstract

    Combining the strengths of both mobile and context aware systems and applying them to educational systems can lead to contextualised learning support (Zimmermann, Lorenz, & Specht, 2005). Mobile blogging applications have become popular as an instant way of accessing and collecting personal memories and blog entries from mobile devices. In the following paper we will present an extension of current systems for blogging we call contextualised blogging. The described conceptual model and architecture allows users to create and manage blogs from a mobile device and combine them with identification tags and therefore leave “blog traces” in a physical environment.
