Abstract The evolution of Information Technology (IT) for more than three decades has drastically affected the way users interact with personal computers and increased their expectations from technology. Towards this objective, researchers developed novel concepts to provide content-rich invisible computing applications, eventually leading to the emergence of the Ambient Intelligence paradigm. Ambient Intelligence is a vision of the future which offers great opportunities to enrich everyday activities (e.g., on the road, at home, at work, etc.). Considering that ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) has been proven to play an important role in education, this thesis investigates the promising potentials of AmI in the education domain. The notion of Smart Classroom has been around already for a few years. In a Smart Classroom, conventional classroom activities are enhanced with the use of pervasive and mobile computing. However, the majority of the current approaches towards the realization of the Smart Classroom addresses various issues unilaterally either from the technological or the educational perspective, neglecting the main objective of supporting the student during the learning process. The ClassMATE system reported in this thesis aims to provide numerous essential educational-related facilities both for the student and for the teacher. ClassMATE, in collaboration with the PUPIL system, incarnates a functional prototype of the envisioned Ambient Intelligence Classroom (in the context of ICS-FORTH AmI Programme). ClassMATE constitutes the backbone infrastructure of the Ambient Intelligence Classroom system, aiming to provide “intelligent” facilities to enhance the educational process. These facilities include: (i) a context-aware classroom orchestration process based on information gathered through ambient environment monitoring, (ii) a mechanism to address heterogeneous interoperability of AmI services and devices, (iii) a synchronous and asynchronous communication scheme, (iv) a user profiling and (v) a content classification mechanism in order to deliver personalized content based on the context of use and the actual needs of every individual learner. The thesis discusses the overall ClassMATE architecture and presents in details the implementation of the above mentioned mechanisms.
