A COUPLE OF DEFINITIONS Learning Object  Term credited to Wayne Hodgins,1994  Smaller, self-contained, re-usable units of learning  [Beck, Robert J., "What Are Learning Objects?", Learning Objects, Center for International Education, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, retrieved 2008-04-29]  text,multimedia, chats, emails, blog posts, games, links, books, articles, etc. User profile  Human user of learning objects to train or to be trained  Heterogeneous learning and social characteristics, 11 abilities, etc. ITAG 2012 - 23/10/2012, Nottingham, UK

THE VSCM MODULE (WORDPRESSPLUGIN) The back-end Administration component  Allows he administrator to maintain the configuration settings of the module The Semantic Repository component  Stores the semantic knowledge model The Content Annotation component  Allows annotation of User profiles and Learning Objects The Semantic Navigation component  Allows browsing through the semantics and retrieval of useful results 14 Accessibility issues are taken into consideration ITAG 2012 - 23/10/2012, Nottingham, UK
