The emergence of Wireless Sensor Networks have become an evolving technology that has a wide range of potential applications to improve the quality of teaching and learning in an ubiquitous environment. WSNs act as the ultimate interface between the learners and the context enhancing the interactivity and improve the acquisition or collection of learner's contextual information in ubiquitous learning. This paper presents a model of ubiquitous learning environment system based on the concepts of ubiquitous computing technology that enables learning to take place anywhere at any time. The u-learning model is a web-based e-learning system that could enable learners to acquire knowledge and skills through interaction between them and the ubiquitous learning environment. The communication between devices and the embedded computers in the environment allows learners to learn in an environment of their interest while they are moving, hence, attaching them to their learning environment.
