This paper describes experiences and strategies of delivering complex content in mobile learning. During a governmental project to improve the quality of university teaching a mobile application to support object oriented programming was developed and evaluated. Based on the experiences, strategies to improve the application’s ability to deliver complex content by adding supportive content for a deeper understanding and slicing the content into smaller objects to reduce complexity are developed and discussed. A further step is adding an agent, visualized and as intelligent background logic to increase the learning motivation, provide incentives and fullfilling the role of a tutor. The agent’s logic recognizes environmental parameters through the sensors of a mobile device and identifies the current learning situation. Suitable parts of the complex learning content are offered by the agent matching the situation and the previous learning history.
