Call: Special Issue IRRODL 2012

19.12.2011: Call für die IRRODL-Ausgabe zum Thema "Technology Enhanced Information Retrieval for Online Learning".
Die Online-Zeitschrift "International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning" ruft in einem Call zu einer Beteiligung an der Ausgabe zum Thema "Technology Enhanced Information Retrieval for Online Learning" auf. Es geht dabei um die Ausewertung von Daten, die während des elektronisch unterstützten Lernprozesses anfallen - natürlich um damit in Zukunft die Lerner noch besser unterstützen zu können.

Aus dem Call:

"Online learning has been developed for over decades and has become an important tool for education. Many tutors design web-based teaching materials and share them in the learning management systems. Learners develop knowledge from those materials, tutor supports, and the collaborations with other learners in distance in the online learning environment and platforms. While information technology changes rapidly and the variety of online learning activities increase, especially with the aid of social network and Web 2.0 tools that  are available to instruction designers, we may need to consider how to provide learners personalized pedagogical service which can help them learn more efficiently. In order to have such personalized service, both course contents and learner's characteristics need to be well analyzed.
How to retrieve useful information from learning materials, data stored in the learning management systems, and discussions and interactions  among learners and how to design and use information retrieval technologies to improve learner's online learning performance become interesting and important topics.
The purpose of this special issue is to explore how models, theories, and solutions of information retrieval and content analysis can be used in online learning and what benefits users can receive from such systems and agents.

Guest Editors (in alphabet order): Dr. Maiga Chang, Dr. Rita Kuo, Dr. Gene Loeb and Dr. Bolanle Olaniran
