The rapid transformation of mobile phones from voice-based communication devices to networked mini computers with advanced sensing and multimedia capabilities affords new ways of m-learning. This paper describes the development of collaborative mobile knowledge sharing system for language learners (CloudBank) that combines the characteristics of personal use, contextual use, informal learning, Web 2.0 ideas of user-generated content, content syndication and social networks, to build a mobile- and web-based crowed-source information system to help international students further their knowledge and understanding of local UK language and culture. An overview of the application design using the scenario based design approach is given and technical architecture and implementation of the system is discussed. The paper concludes with a discussion of future research issues that arise in the context of crowed source information system for ubiquitous language learning.
