From 2000, mobile Learning (m-Learning) and ubiquitous Learning (u-Learning) has been the hottest research topic in e-learning, and now, integrating ubiquitous learning into mainstream of education and train has been the direction in the area, which demand new generational e-learning system. The paper introduces our research efforts in this direction. Based on the key concepts, such as ubiquitous learning object, mini-courseware, a new generational ubiquitous e-learning system is designed, which can be used for new requirements in m-Learning and u-Learning environments. In the system, learning resource related to a course is encapsulated into different ubiquitous learning objects, and mini-courseware can be assembled dynamically with learning resource extracted from these ubiquitous learning objects, accordingly, a mini-courseware player is designed for the situation. Based on these work, a resource based ubiquitous e-Learning system is designed considering pedagogical requirements under m-Learning and u-Learning environment.
