Ubiquitous learning is a set of methods using new technologies to enhance learning and expand the traditional perspective of the learning process itself. In a broad sense, one of the main objectives of ubiquitous learning is to provide learners the right resource at the right time and in the best way. In order to provide learners with adequate learning experience, factors such learner’s characteristics and context should be considered. Managing the learner context can help delivering the best resource adaptation services. Learning object proposed to the learner is obtained from learner context using the decision tree model. On  the  present  paper, a recommender system for ubiquitous learning using learner context and a decision tree model is presented, and k-fold cross validation is used in the experiment for estimating and validating the performance of our recommender system for U-learning.
