As the use of internet based learning has seen a significant increase over the last decade, the topic of new model, methods and tools to support e-Learning have been significant over the last ten years. In this paper, a multimedia application format (MAF) for e-Learning is proposed. The e-Learning MAF shall meet various requirements which enable users to facilitate search, evaluation, acquisition and use of e-Learning contents in ubiquitous environments. To meet these requirements, we design an ISO Base Media File Format file structure and associated MPEG-7 e-Learning metadata suit for e-Learning. In particular, MPEG-7 is used for e-Learning metadata so that it could allow users to consume e-Learning MAF contents with enhanced functionalities such as easy and fast navigation using content-based retrieval. To guarantee interoperability with other e-Learning formats, spaces that are able to contain the metadata of other formats are prepared. We implemented the proposed system on top of mobile device and showed the usability of the e-Learning MAF format and MPEG-7 e-Learning metadata. Furthermore, a prototype system to encode and decode e-Learning MAF is realized on top of mobile device.
