Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the web, published a vision of the next generation web in Scientific American and launched an unprecedented wave of research and development into a new kind of web that machines, not just people, can read. This so-called Semantic Web looks set to have as significant an impact on online e-Learning as the original web had on standalone CBT applications. The phenomenon of Weblogs (or Blogs) is one of the first applications to emerge from this global effort and, while these have interesting educational applications, are just a taste of things to come. FOAF (Friend Of A Friend) is a more recent arrival. Edutella is another. Learning technology specifications like IMS and SCORM are already deeply interwoven with the Semantic Web. This session will introduce the Semantic Web and launch the ToolBook Semantic Web Project.
