Objectives & Topics

The LILE2012 workshop will be a highly interactive forum for exploring the promises of the Web of Linked Data in the broad area of education by gathering researchers from the areas of the Semantic Web, Social Web, E-Learning, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), Open Educational Repositories, pedagogy 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
  • Using the Web of Data for personalisation and context-awareness in E-Learning
  • Usability and advanced user interfaces in learning environments and linked data
