While sharing of open learning and educational resources on the Web became common practice throughout the last years a large amount of research was dedicated to interoperable eLearning repositories based on semantic technologies. However, although the Semantic Web has seen large-scale success in its recent incarnation as a Web of Linked Data, there is still only little adoption of the successful Linked Data principles in the eLearning domain. This workshop builds on the fundamental belief that the Linked Data approach has the potential to fulfill the eLearning vision of Web-scale interoperability of eLearning resources as well as highly personalised and adaptive eLearning applications. The workshop aims to become a highly interactive research forum for exploring the promises of the Web of Linked Data in technology-enhanced learning by gathering researchers from the Semantic
Web area as well as the field of eLearning.

We welcome papers describing current trends on research in (a) how eLearning approaches take advantage of Linked Data on the Web and (b) how Linked Data principles and semantic technologies are being applied in eLearning contexts. Both rather application-oriented as well as rather theoretical papers are welcome. Relevant topics include but are not limited to the following:

* Linked data for informal learning
* Personalisation and context-awareness in eLearning
* Usability and advanced user interfaces in learning environments and linked data
* Light-weight eLearning metadata schemas
* Exposing learning object metadata via RDF/SPARQL & service-oriented approaches
* Semantic & syntactic mappings between eLearning metadata schemas and standards
* Controlled vocabularies, ontologies and terminologies for eLearning
* Personal & mobile learning environments and linked data
* Learning flows and designs and linked data
* Linked data in (visual) learning analytics and educational data mining
* Linked data in organizational learning and learning organizations
* Linked data for harmonizing individual learning goals and organizational objectives
* Competency management and linked data
* Collaborative learning and linked data
* Linked-data driven social networking collaborative learning

We welcome the following types of contributions.

* Short (up to 6 pages) and full (up to 15 pages) research papers

* Poster abstracts and system demonstrations should
not exceed 2 pages.

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
according to the LNCS format (

Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format at


Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop.

The main workshop proceedings will be published as a volume at CEUR Workshop Proceedings. Furthermore, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of Interactive Learning Environments ( which will will be dedicated to the workshop theme as well as a dedicated volume of Springer LCNS ("ESWC 2011 Workshop Highlights").
