The Semantic Web: How RDF Will Change Learning TechnologyCRLF standards

Mikael Nilsson, CETIS, Oct 02, 2001
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Although RDF has been around for a long time (I first covered it in a 1999 essay), it has only recently attracted the attention of the educational community at large. Such is the case with this recent CETIS article that looks at the use of RDF following the release of IMS 1.2 last May. The author identifies four major applications: the use of intelligent software agents, personal annotations (do follow the link from this reference to Annotea), collaborative and distributed authoring and course construction, and reuse of learning material. This paper can be a tough read, but it's worth the investment.
