Abstract [en]

When the subject of scientific analysis is learning, the research needs to be anchored in various nonmonolithic pillars. Several disciplines require a common ground of convergence. An objective observer of the domain can easily conclude that semantic e-learning brings together the three different worlds of learners, pedagogues and technologists. In this short concluding paper of the special issue, we criticise the monolithic approaches to technology-enhanced learning. We argue that semantic e-learning presents a critical research challenge to move towards extended openness, meaning exploitation and unforeseen learning opportunities for the global community. The concluding remark is a call for a new learning generation primer. Synthesizing fantasies is in fact an invitation to semantically define our commitment to collaborate and to agree on the technology-enabled services that bring learning to the forefront. The promotion of the knowledge-and-learning-society requires an integration of the demand and supply side of knowledge and learning.
