Introduction
With the rapid development of Massive Online Open Course (MOOC), web 2.0 online communities, social media and mobile technologies in the big data era, there is a fast proliferation of learning resources such as online learning communities, open course videos and learning materials (e.g., web pages, animations and documents). Confronting such a large volume of learning data, users require effective and efficiency ways to organize and manage information. To achieve this goal, a powerful and versatile user model, which may contain various user information like learning preferences, plans, pre-knowledge levels and contexts, is essential and critical. This user model can be exploited and applied in various web-based learning applications like personalized learning paths discovery, learning resource recommendations, course opinions and sentiment analysis.

Objective
The topic of user modeling for web-based learning involves research in multiple disciplines, for example, computer science, information systems, education and psychology science. It is an opportunity for us to review recent advances, current challenges and future prospects in this field of user modeling from the perspectives of web-based learning. The exploitation of user modeling for web-based learning, the identification of semantics underlying numerous user data for user modeling and efficient algorithms for e-learning data management, and the applications of user modeling for web-based learning are both interesting issues and target problems for this special issue.

Recommended Topics
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
User and learning resource modeling
User and learning resource pattern mining
User profiling and personalization
User log mining and analytics
Learning resource semantics extractions
Learning resource recommendation and search
Index and management of learning resources
Ontology mining and modeling for learning users
Context modeling for users
Social computing and analysis for users
Data management on learning resources
Sentiment mining for user review
Opinions mining on learning resources
Cognitive-based user modeling
Learning style and methodology modeling
Learning assessments modeling
User modeling for domain-specific applications


Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on user modeling for web-based learning on or before December 1 2015. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/journals/guidelines-for-submission.aspx. All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind, peer review basis. Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

All submissions and inquiries should be directed to the attention of:
