Call for Papers
This workshop focuses on the
relation between Computational Linguistics and eLearning. In two
sessions, the role of eLearning in the field of Computational
Linguistics and the contribution of language technology to the further
development of eLearning environments shall be discussed.
1. eLearning for Computational Linguistics
With the SOCRATES thematic network project Advanced computing in the Humanities the need for information technologies and, in particular, eLearning in the humanities, including CL, has been identified. The survey which has been launched revealed the interest in high-quality teaching material and (distance) courses.
On the occasion of a conference and a workshop, both held 1998 and 1999 resp., first results were presented in the form of project notes. Furthermore, didactic issues which concern (distance) teaching and learning of computational linguistics and language technology were raised.
In the meanwhile, various projects have provided high-quality teaching material and (distance) courses for various disciplines of Computational Linguistics, among them:
2. Computational Linguistics for eLearning
eLearning is a way of teaching and learning which relies on the use of computer-mediated communication (CMC), either in a synchronous or in an asynchronous mode. The potential of language technology to make these modes of communication more effective and transparent is high. Language technology can help to enhance the accessibility of online teaching material and the adaptivity of learning management systems.
In the context of computer mediated communication, language technology can be applied for, e.g,
The entire workshop constitutes an informal forum for researchers and teachers to discuss the various issues, to create networks of common interests and to launch new initiatives in the area of eLearning.
