Abstract: The mobile learning system is the anywhere anytime learning that can happen with the smart devices with network connectivity. The learner is the one who learns through these portable smart devices in a personalized environment. So the M-Learning system should understand the needs of a learner, the learning styles and features of the devices; and accordingly should build the context of the learner. The system should adapt itself to the context of the learner, to deliver the content in the video or audio or text formats. The learning styles are identified as V for Visual, A for auditory, R for read and K for kinesthetic. In this paper two contexts – college and house has been considered for the study of Chi Square Test. The Chi Square test has been conducted to find the association and dependencies between the various categorical variables of college and house against the VARK learning styles.
Keywords: VARK, M-Learning, the Chi Square Test, Context, Personalization, Adaptive Learning.

Scope of the Article: M-Learning.
