Collaborative filtering in eLearning applications

2008 - 2009

Collaborative information filtering techniques play a key role in many Web 2.0 applications but are mainly used for business purposes such as product recommendation. In this project, we developed a collaborative filtering approach which is specifically designed for eLearning applications. A controlled lab study with the system confirmed that the underlying algorithm is suitable as a diagnostic tool, and field studies substantiated the educational effectiveness.
