Abstract

In the past decade or so, the Internet has dramatically changed the face of education, as it is now a significant source of material for many students and teachers. However, there has been less development in the current virtual learning environments (VLEs) in the past few years, which remain heavily centered on single institutions. There is a clear need to integrate VLEs with the wider Web. In our research we propose to prototype a VLE that makes use of RDF (the Resource Description Framework) and the Semantic Content Management System (SCMS) Drupal to provide a more open learning environment. Essentially, we aim to use semantic web technology to develop and enhance VLEs by linking to social networks and supporting dynamic content composition for e-Learning services. The paper will introduce our work that we are currently prototyping to demonstrate the advantages of semantic web technologies for VLEs
