On completion of the campus wireless network environment, the combination of the student identity card and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) has produced an unlimited learning environment from classroom to mobile learning. It can integrate the most popular ubiquitous computing to create highly interactive learning. The diversification, digitalization and interaction of the learning environment and methodology not only promotes student interest and creativity but also provides parents with information on their sons'/daughters' learning, grades, lifestyle, security and expenses.

The abandonment of the system of classifying students based on their ability has exacerbated the problems of individual difference and learning barriers. However, students' real long-term memory and thought patterns are invisible, and at present it is still difficult to find learning and psychological techniques to test them. It is important for teachers to be aware of any problems in these areas in advance so that they can help students to fulfil their full potential, but this cannot be achieved through traditional teaching methodology. When a student's physical state deviates from the norm, we may integrate medical attendance with information about body temperature, pulse and brain waves, transmit the data to the end system for comparison with the historical data, and then send them to the teacher for reference.

An effective security mechanism must be found to prevent the potential exposure of personal data. The privacy of the teachers and students must be protected; otherwise the system will not only fail to produce the expected learning effects but also cause serious problems for the administrative personnel.
