Synchronous collaborative navigation is a form of social navigation where users virtually share a web browser. In this paper, we present a symmetric, proxy-based architecture where each user can take the lead and guide others in visiting web sites, without the need for a special browser or other software. We show how we have applied this scheme to a(More)
In this paper we propose an approach to lightweight acquisition, sharing and annotation of experience-based corpora via mobile devices. Corpora acquisition is the crucial and often costly process in speech and language science and engineering. To address this problem, we have built a system for creating a location based corpora annotated with multi-media(More)
Synchronous collaborative navigation is a form of social navigation where users virtually share a web browser. We developed a system based on a symmetric, proxy-based architecture with the intent of using synchronous navigation to support collaborative problem-solving-oriented e-learning, and to allow investigating the nature of collaboration.

This paper presents 'Mobile ELDIT' (m-ELDIT), a system under development which goal is to offer access from PDAs to the learning materials of ELDIT – an adaptable language learning platform. The ELDIT system, which is developed at the European Academy of Bolzano, consists of a learner's dictionary and a text corpus. Exercises, a tandem system and a tutor(More)
The paper presents Porta-bile, a project under development in our University that intends to investigate the use of mobile computing technologies to support the learning processes in an educational context. The project focuses on the technological aspects of mobile learning, and on their integration with e-Learning systems, and more generally, with the(More)
M-learning is a rapidly expanding domain recently. Provoked by the fast advances of mobile technologies, different applications and systems are developed continuously. Here we address the hoarding problem, which is weakly explored before but is a particularly important issue in the mobile domain, and a solution should be included in every system with a(More)
