This paper is about the development of a platform that eases, throughout Android based mobile devices, mobility of users of virtual courses at Technological University of Panama. The platform deploys computational techniques such as “web services,” design patterns, ontologies and mobile technologies to allow mobile devices communicate with Moodle CMS. This creates a collaborative and customized environment of interaction and alerts that allows an efficient, flexible, and transparent communication. The environment is based on service oriented client server architecture, achieved through the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) methodology that eases reuse. The client will have alerts, file downloads, forums and chats, grading, quizzes, and calendar, among other functionalities.
