In this paper an innovative system to search, in virtual e-learning environment, heterogeneous multimedia contents is discussed. The mobile application, named Mobile Query System (Mobile-QS) is based on Web 2.0 technology to inquiry the e-learning platform database with an advanced mobile interface. Mobile-QS is a new virtual environment to extend the fruition in a mobile context both e-learning objects and videos of lectures and seminars for remote classrooms. The easy to use of Mobile-QS supports the students and teachers to formulate simple and complex queries with icons and visual objects. The Usability Laboratory, ENEA Research Centre, has implemented Mobile-QS for MATRIX platform, a new virtual environment, to extend the fruition of the e-learning contents in a mobile context using smart-phones and tablets. The experimentation has been done to study, between the users, the effectiveness and satisfaction of the innovative educational tools.
