Current technology has an important role in many areas, offering numerously possibilities and activities, which were considered traditionally in the past, now can be found on the web.
Is already known that we are living in a digital era, where society needs contributed to technological developments and created a more accessible and usable web.
Basically we can say that e-learning is a strategy for making information and knowledge in a certain domain more accessible. E-learning represents a way for fast delivering of knowledge and is helping us learning anything, anywhere and anytime.
In year 2003, Derek Stockley defined the e-learning as "the delivery of a learning, training or education program by electronic means. E-learning involves the use of a computer or electronic device (e.g. a mobile phone) in some way to provide training, educational or learning material. "
As the technology is evolving day by day, also the e-learning needs to evolve in order to keep up.
Web and semantic technologies are a very complex and abstract domain, being very adaptable in any field, like IT, business or banking and they are regarded as an advantage. Currently, the idea of web and semantic technologies has spread greatly and the newest version is web 3.0.
Web 3.0 appeared because people need to optimize the relationship between the user and the web environment.
The new web 3.0 facilitates the using of electronic media in e-learning environment, providing a more flexible integration approach. Semantic technology offers the possibility for the machine to understand human requirements, using semantic structures. The evolution of web and semantic technologies, highlight the advantages of using those in e-learning.
The potential of semantic technologies is applied on e-learning and used to provide great quality education. It can be said that e-learning is depending on semantic technologies.
The new web 3.0 and semantic technologies are applied in e-Learning, offering benefits and improvements for the e-learning environment.
