    Abstract

    Recently, there have been lots of researches on how to provide personalized services to different users according to their personal characters, needs, situations, contexts and so on. Such personalized services are often based on users' profiles provided by the users in the beginning, and users' records or experiences in using corresponding systems in certain periods. However, different systems or terminals collect user information independently and cannot share the user's personal information collected by these different systems/terminals. As a result, each system can only utilize the limited information collected by the system itself to provide services or recommendations, and it thus cannot meet what users' needs in varied situations across the different systems/terminals. Therefore, it is still an open issue on how to gather, share and utilize various kinds of personal information to effective personalized services in right time, right place and right means to users. In this paper, a case study for personalized pervasive learning is discussed as one typical application of the concept of Cyber-I, an individual's counterpart on the cyberspace. The Cyber-I aims to provide a better environment for users to obtain what they may really need on the Web, and it can be considered as an innovated possibility of web usage scenario in the near future. Our case study using pervasive devices (iPad, cell phone, and laptop) for learning issues can be regarded as the best practice to support the proposed Cyber-I.
