Web technologies have opened a great number of possibilities for group formation, communication, sharing and learning. It allows group of users to carry out activities, to share ideas and results, and furthermore gives more opportunities to develop new teaching practices and to take advantage of the acquired knowledge. These technologies allow applying forms of learning within web-based learning communities, by proposing activities that involve collaboration and communication. This raises new possibilities to explore social learning, supported by rich and varied collaborative processes.

This approach could be seen as online communities of interest, where the “interest” lies in group learning. We can call it a “Social Learning Communities” approach and it considers the social aspects of learning, models for representing and capturing collective knowledge, group profiles, computer-supported collaborative workspaces, distributed management systems, facilities for sharing searching and reusing.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of recent trends and perspectives in Virtual Communities for Learning, focusing on the facilities offered for the Artificial Intelligence models, techniques and procedures to assist learners, to get better the teachers’ activities, to follow the learning processes and, in short, to improve the learners’ results.
