The goal of this paper is to define a concept based on Web 3.0 technologies to improve the learning experience and attempt to create a lifelong learning environment in people’s daily routine. To achieve that, there was a need to analyze the current curves of the World Wide Web (WWW) in this field. The last few years a lot of interesting on-line services have been introduced to the public. On-line video conferencing, synchronous/asynchronous conversations, wikis and social networking are just a few of those technologies which changed the way people see and use the Internet. By using some of these services and combining them with most resent (and interesting) techniques like background customized search and live manipulation of content, it is possible to create a Web 3.0 application with smart, content-aware interface for educational purposes. An application like that will be able to be used both in the corporate and education sector.
