In a lot of cases, the contents given by the educational system don’t leave a mark on students due to that it doesn’t reach to pay enough attention for it has a positive effect on the learning. For that reason, we propose a system able to help for carrying the learning task out and for solving the problem raised with the lack of students’ attention related to the lack of awareness of the place to apply the new taught contents. That makes necessary the incorporation of new technologies, like the use of a Cloud system and the communication via of Web Services when users access by mean of mobile devices, which provide a global site of consults that helps to students to understand contents given and associate them to the real world.
