Some time ago, myself together with Sebastian R. Kruk, Adam Gzella, Bill McDaniel, and Tomasz Woroniecki wrote an article for EC-TEL 2007 – Second European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning that will take place in Semptember in Creete, Greece.
The title of the article is “E-Learning on the Social Semantic Information Sources”. In general, it relates to eLearning, Semantic Web, and Web 2.0. We propose a way of utilizing social tools for eLearning purposes.
Here you have the abstract:
“E-Learning on the Social Semantic Information Sources”
E-Learning grows on the fertile soil of the Internet technologies; it fails, however, to reach their full potential. With new, emerging technologies of the second generation Internet there is even more to be captured and adopted: knowledge sharing with blogs, wikis, and social bookmarking services. In this article we argue that those technologies can be adapted to improve user experience in e-Learning; we present an online social bookmarking system called social semantic collaborative filtering. SSCF supports SIOC metadata which ultimately transforms it in to a browser of blogs, fora, and other community sites. We show how a digital library system, such as JeromeDL, utilizing this technology can be used in the e-Learning process, which takes advantage of recent research in the Internet.

We succeeded and the paper was submission for the conference was accepted. Now, who’s going to Greece? ;>
Anyway, another paper is on the way…
