Track Description and Topics of Interest

With the increasingly growth of multimedia resources in the various e-learning systems and online learning communities, how to find and access useful information for learning and teaching has become a big challenge. Recommendation methods, techniques and systems open an interesting new approach to facilitate and support learning and teaching. The focus is to develop, deploy and evaluate recommender systems that provide learners and teachers with meaningful guidance in order to help identify suitable learning resources, both in terms of digital learning content and people resources (e.g. learners, experts, tutors), from a potentially overwhelming variety of choices. This track aims to bring together researchers and practitioners around the topics of designing, developing and evaluating recommender systems in educational settings as well as present the current status of research in this area. We welcome papers describing work in progress and encourage submissions that make datasets available to the community.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • User modeling for learning recommender systems
  • Affective computing in educational recommender systems
  • Multimedia information retrieval and recommendation for learning
  • Semantic Web technologies for recommendation
  • Data Mining and Web Mining for recommendation
  • Machine Learning for recommendation
  • Context modeling techniques for recommender systems
  • Recommendation algorithms and systems for learning
  • Data sets for learning recommender systems
  • Explanation and visualization of recommendations
  • Evaluation criteria and methods for learning recommender systems
