While we have been successful at broadcasting learning material on
the web, we are still falling short of capturing online the social
interactions students experience. While online learning is effective,
it is not as engaging as it could be. Indeed, we know that learning is
facilitated by environmental factors such as socialization. Yet, during
the last 6 or 7 years, several web applications and frameworks (e.g.,
Bebo, Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, Twitter) have proven that
socialization on the web can go much beyond the early posting boards
and online forums that are still in use within most learning management
systems. Unfortunately, we still know little about what sustains social
interaction on the Web. Moreover, online educators have to design more
than course learning material. They have to enhance this material by
scenarios which integrate online interactions.
We are inviting research articles concerning the theory, engineering
and practice of learning and teaching on the Social Web. We are
particularly inviting research contributions relative to:
- Methodologies to create and sustain online communities around
- Software to assist online educators and learners;
- Theoretical and empirical surveys of existing and emerging
Surveys, tutorials, and case studies are also acceptable.
