-	Automated lecture analysis and indexing
-	Intelligent searching and navigation in e-learning portals

*  Experiments, Laboratories & Virtual Reality
-	Simulations, animations, and virtual laboratories in teaching
-	Virtual reality and augmented reality in education

*  Multimedia Architectures & Repositories
-	Repositories for multimedia education
-	Architectures for User Tracking
-	Technical infrastructures for large scale web lecture repositories

*  Semantic Multimedia in e-Learning Scenarios
- 	Context aware semantic analysis of e-Learning content
- 	Semantic modelling and ontological engineering for e-Learning scenarios
- 	Semantic Web based online educational systems

*  Feedback, Adaptation  & Personalization
- 	Automated analysis of learning and teaching interactions
