Semantic CMS and wikis as platforms for linked learning
Abstract Although interoperability has always been Although interoperability has always been a priority in e-learning, conventional Learning Management Systems are mostly geared towards the Standards for Learning Objects exchange and the integration among systems. The contingency for integration with other web applications and data is hardly foreseen. This prevents them, nowadays, from being flexible to adapt to the Linked Data standards emergence and the advent of Semantic Web in general, unless they radically change orientation. In contrast, Wikis, followed by Content Management Systems, proved to be more versatile in complying with the Semantic Web and Linked Data standards. These advancements, together with their modular architecture, turn Wikis and CMSs into a decent choice for modern e-learning solutions. MediaWiki and Drupal were customized and deployed in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki to assess their potential in exposing the University's learning resources on the Web of Linked Data, in accordance with the Linked Universities Initiative. On the occasion of these two deployments, a thorough comparison of their platforms' potentials to function as Learning Management Systems took place and is presented on this paper.took place and is presented on this paper.
