About these proceedings
You are holding more than 500 pages of combined wisdom on Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) in your hands! With the advance of metadata, standards, learning objects, Web 2. 0 approaches to rip, mix and burn learning, wikis, blogs, syndication, user-generated content, W- based video, games and the ubiquitous availability of computing devices we can and have to offer more flexible learning services on a global scale. As one of the objectives of the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission puts it: We need “responsive environments for technology-enhanced learning that motivate, engage and inspire learners, and which are embedded in the business processes and human resources management systems of organizations. ” An important challenge is to form a bridge between informal learning strategies of the knowledge society and formal competence development programs of organizations. After the success of EC-TEL 2006, the 2nd European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL 2007) provided a unique forum for all research related to technology enhanced learning, including its interactions with knowledge management, business processes and work environments. This is a competitive and broad forum for technology enhanced learning research in Europe and world-wide through specialized workshops, the doctoral consortium and the main conference. EC- TEL 2007 provided unique networking possibilities for participating researchers throughout the week and included project meetings and discussions for ongoing and new research activities supported by the European Commission.
