Objectives & Topics

The workshop aims to be a highly interactive research forum for exploring the promises of the Web of Linked Data in the broad area of learning by gathering researchers from the areas of the Semantic Web, Social Web, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), and Education. We will welcome high-quality papers about actual trends in (a) how education takes advantage of the Web of Data, especially through Linked Data technologies and (b) how Linked Data principles are being applied in educational contexts. We will seek application-oriented, as well as more theoretical papers and position papers in the following, non-exhaustive list of topics:

  • Linked data for informal learning and Web-based education
  • Using the Web of Data for personalisation and context-awareness in E-Learning
  • schema.org and LRMI for annotating and exploring educational related Web content
