This paper describes a technological framework for supporting mobile collaborative learning. The developers can reuse the framework's infrastructure to build content-specific mobile collaborative learning applications best suited for their content area of in-class or out-of-class learning. This paper reports on the experience in designing and using two such applications: for mathematics learning (FAO) and Chinese learning (Chinese-PP). The two applications were trialed with primary school students, the experience in using the system was collected and the benefits of the architecture are reflected upon. In a design-based research fashion the paper proposes a new cycle of system and approach redesign. Copyright © 2012 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
