Learning has gone through major changes from its inception in the human race. Among all such major changes mobile learning is the latest to happen with the advent of mobile learning technologies that have the potential to revolutionize distance education by bringing the concept of anytime and anywhere to reality. From the learner’s perceptive, mobile learning is “any sort of leaning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, pre-determined location or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies”. Research in context aware mobile learning has concentrated on how to adapt applications to context. This paper reviews and discusses few mobile learning systems the approach in implementing context awareness and adaptation
