Continuous enhancements in computer technology and the current widespread computer literacy among the public have resulted in a new generation of students that expect increasingly more from their e-learning experiences. To keep up with such expectations, e-learning systems have gone through a radical change from the initial text-based environments to more stimulating multimedia systems. E-learning functionalities are now also being extended to mobile platforms in order to be more available and convenient for users. Many mobile learning applications have now been developed and they too are becoming more advanced. However, providing truly collaborative and interactive mobile learning tools still remains a challenge. In this paper, we present a desktop e-learning system called CLEV-R and in particular a component of the system that we have developed for mobile devices. This mobile component explores the possibility of providing collaboration tools for mobile learners while also presenting the learning experience through an engaging 3D environment.
