Abstract

This paper describes one solution to the problem of how to collect, organize, and select Web learning resources into a coherent, focused organization for instruction to address learners’ immediate and focused learning needs. By exploiting the semantic relationships that characterize learning resources and learner profile, the proposed semantic-based thematic approach supports both semantic querying and conceptual navigation of learning resources pertaining to specific topics. A system has been developed and deployed within an academic setting, enabling learners to organize, search, and share the learning resources in a flexible and personalized manner.
