  • 8. The SOBOLEO System S t MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 8
  • 9. Overview SOBOLEO – S i l B k Social Bookmarking and Li ht i ht ki d Lightweight Engineering of Ontologies SOBOLEO is: • a tool for editing ontologies • a tool for collecting and annotating web resources as bookmarks • collaboratively usable • web based accessible: http://soboleo fzi de:8080/webPortal Username: FirstnameLastname Password: eatel08 99
  • 10. Purpose Supporting k knowledge workers l d k working together in one domain in developing a shared ontology & a shared index of relevant web resources organized with this ontology 10 10
  • 11. Procedure 1. User f d a new web resource she wants to add to the finds b h dd h shared index 2. Annotating with concepts from the ontology or arbitrary tags 3. Gathering arbitrary tags as “prototypical concepts” for g y g p yp p later consolidation and placement 4. Structuring concepts with taxonomic relations according to the SKOS Core Vocabulary 11 11
  • 12. Features Creating, maintaining and extending d d an ontology Collecting, sharing and organizing bookmarks Annotating bookmarks with concepts g p from the ontology for easier organization Searching and retrieving annotated documents and people b d on th d t d l based the ontology as background knowledge 12 12

  • 21. Hands on Hands-on Phases MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 21
  • 22. Phase 1: Individual & Collaborative Tagging Time: 40’ ’ Resources to work with • h // l i / • Clusters as a seed concepts To Dos • Read and tag papers according to your interests in SOBOLEO • Introduce new tags as you see fit • Watch what others are doing 22
  • 23. Group Building Time: 10’ ’ Resources to work with • none To Dos • You will have to clean up your mess (=consolidate) in the next ( consolidate) phase • Form groups of 3-5 persons according to thematic interests 23
  • 24. Phase 2: Consolidation & New Resources Time: 50’ Ti Resources to work with • Tagged resources and concepts in SOBOLEO, flipchart & cards SOBOLEO (use whatever you need) • Select a set of new papers you have personally bookmarked (not in SOBOLEO) To Dos • Try to arrive at a shared and consolidated conceptualization y p (face to face or online) and input it into SOBOLEO • Tag your selected new papers in SOBOLEO • Check how the shared conceptualization matches these resources • Keep discussing and consolidating while adding new resources 24
  • 25. Reflection Phase MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 25
  • 26. Questions to be answered Report on Activities • A report of what happened in the groups • Quickly presenting and comparing the resulting conceptualizations Opportunities and Pitfalls pp • Any positive remarks about the process? • Any surprising things? Any ideas you did not have before? • Any negative remarks about the process? Any barriers? Improvements and Requirements • A ideas, requirements f tools and services? Any id i for l d i ? • Any ideas, requirements for social processes? 26
