A Social Network for Learning - Supporting Collaborative Learning based on the Ontology for Educational Knowledge

Peter Hubwieser, Andreas Mühling

Abstract

We aim to develop a social network that is based on a specific Ontology for Educational Knowledge (OfEK), intending to support and enhance learning processes by connecting students with other people who are able to collaborate with them, to help or to give advice in any critical situation. The basic idea is to digitalize all relevant curricula, educational standards and organisational circumstances of the major school subjects (e.g. Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Languages) in the German speaking countries according to our OfEK. Hereby we will create a coordinate system that allows students to define their current position in terms of learning content or educational standards respectively in order to join a learning community that is in a comparable situation regarding the intended knowledge.
