SoLearn : a social learning network

Abstract : We have assisted the development of a significant number of e-learning systems, which have achieved great success in distance teaching and education, but most of these systems present some limitations and some disadvantages. Most of them are closed where learning resources are fixed and the adaptability, the flexibility, and the social relations are ignored and in most cases are not taken into account at all, actors of such systems tend to have a minimal collaborative navigation, awareness features and social relations analysis and they often find themselves isolated without a sense of what the rest of the learning community is doing. Significantly, new technologies had recently emerged: the social concepts and the social awareness features led to a significant change in the paradigm of collaboration and learning. These emerging technologies are increasingly being adopted to improve remote education and provide better enhancement for learning. These improvements are offered to students who, regardless of their computer systems, can collaborate to improve their cognitive and social skills. In this article, we present the concepts of a new paradigm of learning: CSSL (Computer Supported Social Learning) where we have implemented a first prototype called SoLearn that groups some of those concepts, SoLearn (A Social Learning Network) aims to provide its users with a new learning experience based on the social networks and enhancing with the social awareness concepts.
