In order to validate the potential deployment of the proposed learning contexts and suggestion rules of the theoretical mobile context-aware suggestion mechanism mCALS, an online case-study was conducted using Java learning objects (LOs). 14 students participated in the study, and the Java LOs used in this experiment were obtained from the Codewitz LO repository and represented a selection of procedural and object-oriented topics. Initially, participants of the study would select how much available time they had (10, 15 or 20 minutes), their current level of motivation (high, medium, low) and knowledge level of Java (high, medium or low). A choice of appropriate LOs was then presented to each participant, which they were then invited to study. This paper presents the case study, and reports that the data analysis provides interesting insights into how the proposed recommendations of context-based Java LOs are suited to students studying in various contexts.
