Making use of Internet of Things in learning systems would open up new pathways to proffer effective learning. Primarily some of these pathways for integrating Internet of Things in learning systems have been discussed. To design an effective pathway for implementing Internet of Things in learning systems, a detailed study of its platforms is needed. In this work, a handful of such platforms have been reviewed based on few parameters. The disparities among these platforms have been separately pointed out. Implementing Internet of Things in learning systems would need to take care of these disparities so as to design a ubiquitous learning network across the globe.
