Synopsis

Learning Network Services for Professional Development by Rob Koper

A Learning Network is a community of people who help each other to better understand and handle certain events and concepts in work or life. As a result - and sometimes also as an aim - participating in learning networks stimulates personal development, a better understanding of concepts and events, career development, and employability. Learning Network Services are Web services that are designed to facilitate the creation of distributed Learning Networks and to support the participants with various functions for knowledge exchange, social interaction, assessment and competence development in an effective way. The book presents state-of-the-art insights into the field of Learning Networks and Web-based services which can facilitate all kinds of processes within these networks.
