Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6738)


We introduce the notion of open learner models as artifacts and resources, situated in school level to illustrate a context of multiple user types. We suggest a new direction for research, focussing on open learner models as a facilitator of communication from a semiotic engineering perspective.
