In conjunction with ICWL 2014
13th International Conference on Web-based Learning
http://icwl2014.tlu.ee

14-17 August 2014

==================================================================


MOTIVATION
===========

The workshop follows the previous SPeL 2008, SPeL 2009, SPeL 2010, SPeL
2011, DULP & SPeL 2012 and SPeL 2013 workshops, held in conjunction with
the SAINT 2008 conference, WI/IAT 2009 conference, DEXA 2010 conference,
ICWL 2011 conference, ICALT 2012 conference and ICSTCC 2013 conference
respectively. The general topic of the workshop is the social and personal
computing for web-supported learning communities.

Web-based learning is moving from centralized, institution-based systems
to a decentralized and informal creation and sharing of knowledge. Social
software (e.g., blogs, wikis, social bookmarking systems, media sharing
services) is increasingly being used for e-learning purposes, helping to
create novel learning experiences and knowledge. In the world of pervasive
Internet, learners are also evolving: the so-called "digital natives" want
to be in constant communication with their peers, they expect an
individualized instruction and a personalized learning environment, which
automatically adapt to their individual needs. The challenge in this
context is to provide intelligent and adaptive support for collaborative
learning, taking into consideration the individual differences between
learners.

This workshop deals with current research on collaboration and
personalization issues in Web-supported learning communities, leading
towards the creation of a truly social and adaptive learning environment.
Its aim is to provide a forum for discussing new trends and initiatives in
this area, including research about the planning, development,
application, and evaluation of intelligent e-learning systems, where
people can learn together in a personalized way through social interaction
with other learners.
