Semantic markup in discussion fora
Discussion tools in existing LEs have few or no integrated tools to analyse student learning. This paper proposes tools not only for integrating social network analytics, but also why we need to semantically tag and track key concepts within posts in order to make student learning in discussions visible. This paper will argue for the importance of semantic markup in discussion tools using screenshots of existing LEs and UI mockups of semantically aware discussion tools to argue the case for this element of next generation LEs
