Abstract: This chapter describes a multi-platform extension of learning networks. In addition to web- and desktop-based access, we propose to provide mobile, contextualised learning content delivery and creation. The extension to a multi-platform extension is portrayed as follows. First, we give a description of learning networks, the kind of learning focused at, and the mechanisms that are used for learner support. After that, we illustrate a possible extension to contextualised, more authentic forms of learning mediated by mobile devices. Moreover, we give some requirements for a multi-platform learning network system and a set of tools that should support two different user groups. Two blended learning scenarios are given as examples of how the extended system could be used in practice. Last, the conclusions and outlook describe what is necessary to integrate multi-platform e-learning software in existing learning scenarios, and how a larger scale adaption can be achieved.
