FolksAnnotation: A Semantic Metadata Tool for Annotating Learning Resources Using Folksonomies and Domain Ontologies

Al-Khalifa, Hend S. and Davis, Hugh C. (2006) FolksAnnotation: A Semantic Metadata Tool for Annotating Learning Resources Using Folksonomies and Domain Ontologies At the Second International IEEE Conference on Innovations in Information Technology. 17 - 21 Nov 2006.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

There are many resources on the Web which are suitable for educational purposes. Unfortunately the task of identifying suitable resources for a particular educational purpose is difficult as they have not typically been annotated with educational metadata. However, many resources have now been annotated in an unstructured manner within contemporary social bookmaking services. This paper describes a novel tool called ‘FolksAnnotation’ that creates annotations with educational semantics from the del.icio.us bookmarking service, guided by appropriate domain ontologies.
