Technological progress in recent years has allowed the design of new intelligent learning systems in smart environments aiming to facilitate users' lives. As a consequence, besides making use of traditional sensors for monitoring the quantities of interest, such systems can also benefit from information obtained from the users' smart devices, which can now be considered as additional sensing tools. In this article, we present the design of a novel system based on the fog computing paradigm that can improve the services offered to users on a smart campus by using different smart devices, i.e., smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, smartcameras and so on. In particular, we will describe a system in which several smart devices will collect sensory and context information, whilst the cloud will aggregate and analyze this data to extract information of particular interest. The main challenge of this project is to create an intelligent platform that allows new software modules to be added without having to re-design the entire architecture, and that can provide new services to campus users or improve existing ones.
