Abstract

Most of the universities, nowadays, are struggling to enhance the professional experience and skills of their personnel in order to efficiently utilize the new technologies in their teaching activities. The pressure for this comes from many sources, including employers who are demanding graduates with generic as well as domain-specific skills, from students themselves who expect using technologies in their learning, and from institutions that want to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by the new delivery methods. Semantic web-based education has become as ubiquitous as the web is today, but is not yet a reality. At the moment, it is a futuristic vision founded in current developments in Internet technologies, and the semantic web in general. This paper proposes an approach for universities to apply emerging technologies in their educational activities. It also explores the idea of providing teachers with access to, and skills in the use of, technology-based learning tools, whose design and use are derived from learning needs, and proposes a teaching strategy for MSc in Business Information Systems.
