  • Education
  • The World Wide Web has caused a revolution in the way we teach and learn. The technology enables us to provide interactive learning material in new ways, to support learning collaboration and learning communities, to provide personalized learning experience, and to incorporate diverse re-usable learning objects into the local learning experience. Furthermore it provides the possibility to create new learning designs to make learning more flexible, adaptable, attractive and accessible to learners.

    To make these and other experiences possible, many educational and training projects do not just bring new learning materials or designs to the Web but also contribute quite a few Web-related methodologies or technology. The WWW2004 Education Track is aimed at researchers who wish to share innovative experiences and research results that are (at least partially) domain independent and that can thus benefit other teachers and learners who wish to get more out of the Web.

    Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Web educational portal and learning management systems
    • Authoring of Web-based learning material
    • Architectures and designs for web-based learning delivery environments
    • Identification, reuse and granularity issues of learning objects
    • Business models for the exchange of learning objects
    • Metadata specifications and standards for learning objects
    • Integrating (Web-based) multimedia in educational applications
    • Student modeling in open learning environments
    • (On-line) adaptation to learner's knowledge, goals, interest and
    • learning style
    • Learning technnology specifications & standards for interoperability
    • Web log mining applied to student performance data
    • Intellectual property issues arising from the use of learning objects
    • Agents in Web-based teaching and learning
    • Social, cultural and multilingual issues in Web-based learning
    • Case studies in the implementation and use of educational
    • applications in a Web-based environment
    • Distributed and P2P-based learning repositories
    • Integration of web-based learning with enterprise systems
    • Empirical studies of web-based educational systems
    • IR and text classification methods in open learning environments
    • Collaboration and communities in web-based educational
    • environments
    • Data protection and privacy in Web-based education and training
