Abstract / Description
Guided Personal Learning Environment concept (gPLEc) is a novel PLE-building methodology which seeks to fulfill emergent learning needs of a learner through incorporating teachers' guidance element in learners' PLE-building activity. Using Social Semantic Web (SSW) and Recommender System (RS) technologies the gPLEc integrates teachers' PLE-based learning competencies and learners' social web and interaction history data to generate personalized recommendations for each learner. The results, achieved so far, confirm importance of teachers' guidance element for successful implementation of the PLE vision. The expected outcome of this exploratory research is to gain knowledge to construct personalized elearning systems.
