Special Issue on eLearning and Linked Open Data – Bulletin of the Technical Committee on Learning Technology

Technology

Learning and Linked Open Data

With the proliferation of e-learning resources on the Web, exposing, and
sharing educational resources in digital form has become an important
issue.
Many of these resources are implicitly related to each other or to the
interest, cultural and technical environment of learners. Connecting
different kinds of learning objects promotes a new scenario where currently
isolated data repositories would progress towards an open discovery space
including resources independent of their geographic and system boundaries.
Finding links is also very useful for enriching educational materials and
provides the added benefit of giving access to richer contents to both
educators and learners.
The Linked Data approach, as a de facto standard for interlinking data on
the Web, includes a set of successful principles which facilitate sharing
and reusing data on the Web and lead to vast amounts of publicly available
datasets. Using Linked Data, the repository owners can publish structured
data and establish typed links among them from various sources. This
approach enables enriching existing resources, enhances casual discovery,
and improves resource discovery. However, applying the Linked Data in
eLearning contexts needs more research attention and many aspects remain
largely unexplored.

This special issue discusses how the Linked Data approach can be applied
for
sharing, reusing and enriching the eLearning resources on the Web and what
advantages it can bring to the eLearning stakeholders.

The Bulletin of the Technical Committee on Learning Technology publishes
articles, project reports, and case studies which may be of interest to
academics, researchers, and professionals involved in the field of existing
and emerging learning technologies.

This special issue will be published in Volume 16, No 4 (October, 2014).

Submission procedure
Articles, case studies and project reports can be submitted to this
special issue. Manuscripts are limited to 4 pages. Use the IEEE template
for
preparing your manuscript and follow the IEEE guidelines. The IEEE template
is available online at: http://www.ieeetclt.org/content/authors-guidelines
manuscripts should be either in Word or in RTF format, with any figures
embedded in the text at appropriate places. In addition, figures used in
the
contributions should be provided in separate graphics files (gif, bmp, or
jpeg files).
Please send the manuscripts and all relevant material by email as an
attachment to salvador.sanchez@uah.es and enayat.rajabi@uah.es (Please user
subject line: IEEE-TCLT Bulletin Submission).
In the email, please state clearly that the manuscript is original
material that has not been published, and is not being considered for
publication elsewhere.

Important Dates
Deadline for submission of articles: October 31, 2014.

The 15th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT 2015)

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 15th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies – ICALT2015

Hualien, Taiwan, July 6-9, 2015

http://www.ask4research.info/icalt/2015/

Deadline: January 20th, 2015

Emerging technologies keep transforming not only the ways people learn but what they learn as well. Access to learning is nowadays moving beyond defined pathways and discrete courses. It rather integrates formal and informal learning experiences throughout life. Learning is structured around flexible curricula that accommodate needs of diverse student audiences, and offer access to courses, content, and resources through a variety of platforms, devices, and contexts. This change of the way people access learning poses quandaries for educational organisations, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, especially with regards to the development of advanced technologies that accommodate the needs of a new generation of learners; the choice of appropriate technologies; and the application of learning technologies in emerging learning contexts. 

ICALT is an annual international conference on Advanced Learning Technologies and Technology-enhanced Learning organized by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology. After its kick-off as IWALT in Palmerston North, New Zealand (2000), ICALT has been held in Madison, USA (2001), Kazan, Russia (2002), Athens, Greece (2003), Joensuu, Finland (2004), Kaohsiung, Taiwan (2005), Kerkade, The Netherlands (2006), Niigata, Japan (2007), Santander, Spain (2008), Riga, Latvia (2009), Sousse, Tunisia (2010), Athens, Georgia, USA (2011), Rome, Italy (2012), Beijing, China (2013) and Athens, Greece (2014).
