Abstract

Educational content is often shared among different educators and is enriched, adapted and in general repurposed so that it can be re-used in different contexts. This paper presents the MetaMorphosis+ environment for publishing, sharing and repurposing educational content in medical education. The environment meshes the paradigms of social Web and semantic Web to publish richly annotated educational resources that are further semantically enriched and exposed in the Linked Open Data cloud. The goal is to enable more relevant searching and retrieval of medical educational resources, as well as linking to other related resources in the medical domain, including scientific publications and clinical data.
