Abstract—Although Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
network is aimed basically at home/ office service automation
for general purposes, it can turn out to support for ubiquitous
learning objective as well, if somewhat level of semantic
capability will be involved. In this paper, we discuss how the
UPnP network infrastructure should be polished with the
Linked Data principle for enabling semantic-based ubiquitous
learning services so that sharing digital contents can be done
between heterogeneous devices in an effective manner, without
the need of many distinct learning standards. In addition, we
describe a case of simple quiz to illustrate how the Linked Data
publishing of distributed multimedia resources can be utilized
in our extended UPnP architecture.
Index Terms—Linked data, semantic web, ubiquitous mobile learning, UPnP.
