education portal com
The aim of the Education Portal is to make available to the education professionals across Europe the practical teaching and training resources developed during the years within the framework of Council of Europe projects. By using these resources and developing new competences via the courses offered, education professionals can contribute to build a democratic culture in their schools and communities.
Resources listed in the portal’s catalogue can be consulted for free and education professionals and learners can sign in to take self-learning courses structured at their own pace.
Recommendation in education portal is helpful for students to know the important learning resources in schools. Currently, previous methods which have been proposed to solve this problem mainly focus on page view counts. A learning resource is important just because many students have viewed it. However, as the metadata in a resource is becoming available, the relations among the resources and other entities in real world are becoming more and more. Unfortunately, how to use such relations to make better recommendations has not been well studied. In this paper, we present a complementary study to this problem. Specially, we focus on a general education portal, which consists of different typed objects, including resource, category, tag, user and department. The recommendation object is resource. However, we have found that a resource’s importance rank can be affected by its relations to other typed objects. Thus, we formalize the resource recommendation as a ranking problem by considering its relations to other typed objects. A random walk algorithm to estimate the importance of each object in the education portal is proposed. Finally, the experimental result is evaluated in a real world data set.
