First International Workshop on Learning Object Discovery & Exchange (LODE 2007)


Draft proceedings


CALL FOR PAPERS

The LODE workshop is held in conjunction with the 2nd European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL07),?Crete, Greece, September 17-20, 2007


CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES

Although the use of learning (content) management systems is becoming common in most educational organizations and the number of educational resources available online, for free or by subscription, is huge, most of these resources are hidden in repositories and cannot be easily found, which hampers their potential use and reuse.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working at unlocking the educational content hidden in repositories and facilitating the retrieval and exchange of this content. The workshop aims at providing an international forum to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the issues and innovative approaches in the field. Therefore, the workshop welcomes original/position/work-in-progress/experience papers on all aspects related to the discovery and retrieval of distributed learning resources. Submissions that identify new issues and focused directions for future work in the area are also welcome.

The workshop will be strongly discussion-oriented. To that effect, all accepted papers and posters will be made available online before the workshop at http://fire.eun.org/lode2007/.
