Abstract

Comparing with traditional e-learning, the socialized e-learning system provides us a new paradigm to deliver knowledge through social medias. In this study, we concentrate on the organization of knowledge delivered across the social media enhanced learning environment in order to support the learning process. An integrated approach is proposed to capture users' intentions using eye-tracking technology, and further organize the related social streams into meaningful contents, in which both re-defined and newly created knowledge from interactions among users can be extracted in accordance with users' individualized requirements to assist their learning tasks and finally promote the learning efficiency for both professors and students.
