Today, digital transformation is changing the educational and social life rapidly. In contrast, organizations and educational institutions, developers, and end users do not benefit from cloud-based mobile technologies to the desired level. Mobile systems are used extensively for educational purposes in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment, and the number of online students is increasing. The real problem is how user-friendly, aesthetic mobile learning courses can be effectively delivered on different mobile devices in the desired performance and manner. The responsive design developed with fog computing should be able to provide the ability to design and use mobile learning lessons with sufficient performance, automatically adapted to any browser or device. This should ensure that every person of the target audience can benefit from the lessons without worrying about screen size, resolution, speed and even security. In this study, the fog informatics teaching strategies of mobile learning sensitive teaching design are discussed. The fog computing architecture that can be used with responsive mobile learning, utilizing mobile computing to provide seamless and low latency mobile devices, is described. Finally, a fog-based, responsive designed mobile learning education architecture has been compiled with a better understanding of the lessons and a suitable structure for the use of mobile devices in education.
