Name: OsMoSyS
Abstract     Open Social Mobile Systems (OSMoSYS) for eLearning Research proposes to build a research infrastructure to stimulate and observe interaction patterns between and among humans and devices in an electronic learning ecosystem of content objects, mobile devices, semantic web services and other intelligent agents. The infrastructure will make it possible for mobile learning researchers to create, capture and index content in the mobile context, to analyze the effectiveness of mobile learning activities, social networking systems and ubiquitous technologies that trigger proximity based interactions.
