WWW2014 Workshop on Web-based Education Technologies (WebET 2014)
April 9, 2014, Seoul, Korea

A workshop of WWW 2014 (The 23rd International World Wide Web Conference)

The Web has long been recognized as a powerful platform for teaching and learning. The educational community was among the early adopters of the technology and has contributed to its evolution. We are at this point at a major inflection point for Web-based Education Technologies. The convergence (“a perfect storm”) of new technologies supporting search, social media, semantics, data mining (Big Data), and others along with current interest to distributed educational pedagogies such as connectivism, behaviorism, and “the flipped classroom” promises to dramatically change Web-based Education Technologies in the near future. The interest in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has been described as “a tsunami in education” and has re-kindled valuable discussions regarding the role of WebET.

Workshop topics include, but not limited to:

A. Pedagogy
* Distance and remote learning/teaching models and curriculum design
* Behaviorist and connectivist models found in xMOOCs and cMOOCs
* Web-based social media in teaching and learning
* The “flipped classroom” model
* Implications of mobile-based and BYOD to create learning environments
* WebET and the support of Personal Learning Networks (PLNs)
* Adaptive and Ubiquitous teaching and learning

B. WebET Resources
* The availability and use of open resources/content (e.g., OER, open universities, MIT OpenCourseWare)
* The implications of Linked Open Data (LOD) resources in education
* Educational “mashup” systems
* “Big Data Mining” in educational systems
* Open source education systems and platforms
* Content generation systems and tools
* Copyright issues
* Open Source systems

C. Case Studies and User Experience
* Utilization of cloud-based services in WebETs (e.g., Google Apps)
* Web-based Learning Management Systems (LMSs) (e.g., Moodle, Blackboard)
* MOOC platforms (e.g., edX, Coursera, Udacity)
* Web-based tutoring systems (e.g., Khan Academy, Duolingo,
* WebET and professional education/training (e.g., Webinars)
* Issues in using content generation systems and tools (e.g., Camtasia, Captivate)
* Plagiarism detection systems (e.g., Turnitin, VeriGuide)

D. Technological Challenges in WebET
* Security and Privacy
* Web-based student assessment systems
* “Digital Divide” issues (e.g., bandwidth)
* Accreditation and monetization systems
* Support for crowd-sourced learning environments
* Alternative technologies (e.g., virtual environments, augmented reality)
* Integration of various Learning Management Systems with existing information systems
* Issues in designing and implementing education cloud systems
* Educational analytics
* Accessibility issues

E. WebET Best Practices
* Policy issues
* Faculty issues and concerns
* WebET and Continuing Education programs
* Legal issues (e.g., accreditation)

* Paper Submission Deadline: Jan. 14, 2014 (23:59 Hawaii Standard Time)
* Author Notification: Feb. 4, 2014
* Final Manuscript: Feb. 12, 2014

Authors are invited to submit original papers that must not have been submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or journal. The workshop will accept full papers describing completed work, work-in-progress papers with preliminary results, as well as position papers reporting inspiring and intriguing new ideas.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and be evaluated for originality, quality and appropriateness to the workshop. At least one author of each accepted papers must present their work at the workshop. All accepted and presented papers will be published in the Companion Proceedings of the WWW conference, through the ACM Digital Library. Extended versions of selected best papers will be considered for publication in special issues of SCI-index international journals.

Please submit your paper here:

All submitted papers must:
* be written in English;
* contain author names, affiliations, and email addresses;
* be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings template( with a font size no smaller than 9pt;
* be in PDF (make sure that the PDF can be viewed on any platform), and formatted for US Letter size;
* occupy between four to six pages, including the abstract, references, and appendices.

It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere strictly to the required format.
Submissions that do not comply with the above guidelines may be rejected without review.
