The SeLeNe Project

The workshop is being organised as part of the SeLeNe project (IST-2001-39045). SeLeNe (Self e-Learning Networks) is a one-year Accompanying Measure funded by EU FP5, running from 1st November 2002 to 31st January 2004. The project falls into action line V.1.9 CPA9 of the IST 2002 Work Programme, and is contributing to the IST Action Line "Information and Knowledge Grids". The SeLeNe project is conducting a feasibility study into using semantic web technology for syndicating knowledge-intensive resources, such as learning objects. It is developing services for the discovery, sharing, and collaborative creation of learning resources, facilitating a syndicated and personalised access to such resources.
