Semantic Technologies in Learning and Teaching (SemTech)

Interaction with Knowledge and semantics, Technology Enhanced Learning

Semantic technologies appear to hold the promise of significantly enhancing formal and informal learning but certain issues such as building ontology consensus, the logistics of annotating large volumes of learning content and the underpinning pedagogy have been frequently questioned. However, recent developments in Web 2.0 tools and services for teaching and learning show that these concerns can be successfully addressed and benefit HE/FE, informal learning and exploratory learning.

This project will identify and quantify these benefits and outline a roadmap for semantic technologies adoption in these contexts. Addressing the HE/FE institutional perspective will involve case studies based on existing work.
