*apologies for cross-posting*

Due to many requests we decided to extend the submission deadline to July
1st 2008.

Interactive Learning Environments
Special Issue on "Semantic Technologies for Multimedia-enhanced
Learning Environments"

Call for papers

The availability of metadata based on the Semantic Web technologies is
recognized as a key asset that enables aggregation, provisioning,
retrieval, reusability, adaptation, and personalization of
(educational) multimedia content. In learning environments, Semantic
Web technologies can integrate data about learning objects, learning
activities and learners captured from various e-learning systems and
tools. This inevitably brings multimedia-enhanced learning
environments to increased levels of interaction and collaboration.
Today, we are living in the era of the proliferating use of Web 2.0
approaches (e.g. collaborative tagging, social networking, mash-ups,
blogs, and Wikis) that are usually based on lightweight semantics and
represented in the form of 'folksonomies'. Despite the initial
perception that Web 2.0 opposes to the Semantic Web, these two efforts
are being jointly used to create a common space of semantic
technologies. This special issue solicits papers focused on the use of
semantic technologies in multimedia-enhanced learning environments.
Submissions are invited on topics that include, but are not limited
to, the following:

     * Ontologies and semantic annotations for multimedia learning objects
     * Collaborative tagging and folksonomies for multimedia learning
     * Semantic social networking in multimedia-based learning environments
     * Semantic technologies for enabling pedagogical theories in
multimedia-enhanced learning environments
     * Semantic-enhanced learning designs in multimedia-enhanced learning
     * Semantic technologies for personalization and adaptation of
multimedia-enhanced learning
     * Semantic-rich service-oriented architectures for multimedia
learning environments
     * Semantic multimedia content for (collaborative) mobile learning
