In this paper we describe an information system designed to simplify the interactions which occur frequently between students and lecturers within a Higher Education environment. The concept focuses on utilizing both objects in the physical world and online services to create new experiences to support flexible learning for educational settings. With the opportunities offered by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) / Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies, tags can be used to identify and perform interactions between users. The system allows for the timetabling of meetings, delivery of messages and course announcements between the students and lecturers. The objective is to eliminate the problems which are encountered when arranging appointments or convening with students. By placing the responsibility of booking appointments in the hands of students using their mobile devices; the system aims to provide an interactive and ubiquitous support technology for both student and faculty members.
