This paper is based on previous publications and work by the same authors during the implementation of a client-server mobile learning system called Image Indexing for Mobile Phone (ID4MP). The system has a good feature of efficiency, accuracy and performance in retrieving and delivering learning content to students' mobile phones. The system was developed based on a new hybrid algorithm called Ferial Hybrids Algorithm (FHSA). Content-based and Concept-based indexing are described, and the versatile new FHSA algorithm is introduced. This algorithm is unique as it combines Content-based and Concept-based indexing methods to form an efficient, accurate and novel retrieving mechanism. In this paper, we explain this new hybrid algorithm and its robust functionality when combining two indexing methods (Content-based and Concept-based) to retrieve learning content from the server to the client. This system can be implemented in educational institutions and can be made accessible to teachers and students.
