  5. 5. Objec,vesDesign an improved explanation of the recommendation to the user Generally in the currently available systems, the recommendation only comes with an overall score Increase the recommendation acceptance rate in order to enhance the student experience in social networks You answered questions about X,Y, Z. You answered questions about X,Y, Z. You have A,B,C friends in common Your friend asked this question. Your friends P,X and Y follows him. You both live at the same state Pernambuco. You have X,Y, Z followers in common You are both interested in portuguese, maths and english.You have X,Y, Z concursos in common You have P,Q, R study groups in common. Because you have difficulty in portuguese, maths and english. Because it is a most searched course 5

  10. 10. Expected  Results Improve the Learning Process Analyze how the recommenders can increase the learning process in online educational social networks. Mining all types of source in social networks in forms of recommendations Explore the Hidden Knowledge There are several knowledge sources in a educational social network. All those sources as basis for discovery novel content and learning resources Better Recommendation Understanding The explanations can be quite helpful to better understanding of the given resource Better learning interaction and simplification of the human/computer interaction 10
  11. 11. ConclusionsProposal of a personalized recommender systemthat incorporate different types of source of knowledgeIt can be applied in adaptive social networksBring machine learning to web educational systemsHelp the students to find an optimal path to learning resourcesHelp the researchers and designers how to designthe social network to achieve those tasks efficiently 11
