About this book

The first section of Semantic Web and Education surveys the basic aspects and features of the Semantic Web. After this basic review, the book turns its focus to its primary topic of how Semantic Web developments can be used to build attractive and more successful education applications.

The book analytically discusses the technical areas of architecture, metadata, learning objects, software engineering trends, and more. Integrated with these technical topics are the examinations of learning-oriented topics such as learner modeling, collaborative learning, learning management, learning communities, ontological engineering of web-based learning, and related topics. The result is a thorough and highly useful presentation on the confluence of the technical aspects of the Semantic Web and the field of Education or the art of teaching. The book will be of considerable interest to researchers and students in the fields Information Systems, Computer Science, and Education.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The semantic Web opens a number of new issues and possibilities for Web-based education, which is the subject of this book. … The book is well written, and contains a wealth of references that can serve for further study. … I recommend it to researchers and students interested in the semantic Web and Web-based education, and to those interested in developing educational applications. I have used this book successfully in a doctoral seminar, but it is also well suited for students seeking their master’s degrees." (M. Bielikova, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008)
