The Semantic Web for e-Learning


The advent of Semantic Web and its relevant technologies, tools and applications provide a new context for exploitation. The 'expression of meaning' relates directly to numerous open issues in e-learning. In this special issue the focus is twofold: on the one hand to stress the importance of Semantic Web towards systems that provide value to learners, and on the other hand to reveal research opportunities that can initiate interesting research and projects in the forthcoming years.
