From folksonomies to ontologies: employing wisdom of the crowds to serve learning purposes
M. Lux, und G. Dösinger. International Journal of Knowledge and Learning3 (4-5):
Is Web 2.0 just hype or just a buzzword, which might disappear in the near future One way to find answers to these questions is to investigate the actual benefit of the Web 2.0 for real use cases. Within this contribution we study a very special aspect of the Web 2.0 the folksonomy and its use within self-directed learning. Guided by conceptual principles of emergent computing we point out methods, which might be able to let semantics emerge from folksonomies and discuss the effect of the results in self-directed learning.
