Repositories of learning objects are a key component to support authoring of educational material.
While search and retrieval solutions for educational resources are advancing, the semantic richness of data and metadata remains limited. At the same time, these digital libraries are increasingly turning into "soally aware", open repositories where user behaviour is reflected in attention metadata, ratings and other kinds of quality feedback.
As a result, on one
hand, some current developments focus on incorporating a semantic layer in
digital learning libraries, often based on ontologies, like for instance a
conceptualization of the subject domain. On the other hand, other approaches
focus more on the development of web communities and social software to enhance
Learning Object repositories.
The goal of the workshop is to be an informal meeting which facilitates the dissemination of knowledge and expertise in this field. A certain amount of time will be devoted to discussions, depending on the number of participants.
workshop will focus on (but is certainly not limited to) the following topics:
Since this is a workshop, we welcome papers that describe speculative ideas, work in progress, and discussions of important issues.
Accepted papers will be made available before the workshop, so that we can focus on discussion and demonstration, and thus take full advantage of the opportunities of a face-to-face meeting.
Authors are expected to submit papers 4-8 pages long formatted accordingly with ECDL 2006 guidelines.
