IM-TAG: Informal Mentoring Improved by Means of Social Web Contents Tagging
Corporations are facing an era in which human capital is crucial for their sustainability. In such scenario, personnel development is decisive for both personnel and organizations. On the other hand the importance of social web for business is unquestionable in terms of knowledge management and information sharing. This paper presents IM-TAG, a tool to use web 2.0 contents in informal mentoring processes. This tool is based on the processing of semantic tagging of blog contents as well as opinion tagging made by users. The results of the process are recommendations of mentoring contents built upon personal characteristics of the mentee combined with content and opinion tagging.
