Call For Papers
A special issue of the Journal of Emerging Technologies in Web Intelligence (JETWI)
While we have been successful at broadcasting learning material on the web, we are still falling short of capturing online the social interactions students experience. While online learning is effective, it is not as engaging as it could be. Indeed, we know that learning is facilitated by environmental factors such as socialization. Yet, during the last 6 or 7 years, several web applications and frameworks (e.g., Bebo, Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, Twitter) have proven that socialization on the web can go much beyond the early posting boards and online forums that are still in use within most learning management systems. Unfortunately, we still know little about what sustains social interaction on the Web. Moreover, online educators have to design more than course learning material. They have to enhance this material by scenarios which integrate online interactions.
We are inviting research articles concerning the theory, engineering and practice of learning and teaching on the Social Web. We are particularly inviting research contributions relative to:
* Methodologies to create and sustain online communities around learning objectives;
* Software to assist online educators and learners;
* Theoretical and empirical surveys of existing and emerging platforms.
Surveys, tutorials, and case studies are also acceptable.
* Web 3.0
* Ambient and Ubiquitous Learning
* Web 2.0 and Social intelligence
* Web Mining
* Web Services and Semantic Web
* Human-Web Interaction
* Web Agents and Agent-based Systems
* Knowledge Management, Networks, and Communities
* Ontology Engineering
* Personalization Techniques
* Semantic Web
* Web based Support Systems
* Web Services, Services Discovery & Composition
* Enterprise Mashup
