Abstract: Recommender Systems have became extremely appealing for all technology enhanced learning researches aimed to design, develop and test technical innovations which support and enhance learning and teaching practices of both individuals and organizations. In this scenario a new emerging paradigm of explainable Recommander Systems leverages social friend information to provide (social) explanations in order to supply users with his/her friends’ public interests as explained recommendation. In this paper we introduce our educational platform called “WhoTeach”, an innovative and original system to integrate knowledge discovery, social networks analysis, and educational services. In particular, we report here our work in progress for providing “WhoTeach” environment with optimized Social Explainable Recommandations oriented to design new teachers’ programmes and courses.
