Nowadays, one of the main issues discussed at the Community level is rep- resented by the mobility of students and workers across Europe. During the last years, in order to deal with the above picture, several initiatives have been carried out: one of them is the definition of the European Qualification Framework (EQF), a common architecture for the description of qualifications. At the same time, several research activities were established with the aim of finding how semantic technologies… Expand
On the Use of Semantic Technologies to Support Education, Mobility and Employability
This study aims to present an overview of recent research in the field of semantic technologies applied to education and job-seeking contexts, by distinguishing three fields of research: knowledge base creation, the development of strategies for the integration of heterogeneous systems and the definition of inference rules, and the identification of methodologies for the visualization of qualification outcomes and curricula.
