The WWW is currently experiencing a revolutionary growth due to its numerous social software. This paper highlights an emerging application development paradigm on the WWW, called mashups. As blogs have enabled anyone to become a publisher, mashups stimulate web development by allowing anyone to combine existing data together to develop web applications. Current applications of mashups include tracking of events such as crime, hurricanes, earthquakes, meta-search integration of data and media feeds, interactive games, and as an organizer for web resources. The implications of this emerging web integration and structuring paradigm remains yet to be explored fully. This paper describes mashups from a number of angles, highlighting current developments and providing sufficient illustrations to indicate its potential implications. This talk will discuss how E-learning mashups can consolidate a variety of distributed learning resources and databases to enable adaptive E-learning, personalized learning management, flexible curriculum development and collaborative content development.
