Abstract

The paper describes a system to support student collaborative and metacognitive activities in distance education settings, called an education recommender system. This Internet-accessible system allows students to share and view ratings, opinions, and recommendations about resources on the Internet and World-Wide Web based on a social information filtering system. We believe that this approach promotes more mindful and reflective engagement with Internet-based information. Use of the system also helps support collaborative and community-building learning activities in a distance learning setting.
