Abstract

Due to the ubiquitous nature of mobile devices, they are now considered as an emerging platform for facilitating both teaching and learning experiences. In this paper, we presented a tailored mobile learning system, namely the Integrated English and Programming Language Learning System (IEPLS), which aims at learning English vocabulary before studying programming language concepts. The IEPLS supports programming language learning in three ways; (a) Recommending to learn specific English vocabulary used in programming language concepts (b) Adaptation to the learning flow of the learner and (c) Motivating and encouraging learners to learn items based on individual learner's performance. The IEPLS was used by one hundred and fifty undergraduate students for six months. Evaluation results revealed the attainment of IEPLS in supporting learners in learning programming languages backed by precise English vocabulary.
