This chapter describes personalisation services for self e-learning networks. A self e-learning network consists of web-based learning objects that have been made available to the network by its users, along with metadata descriptions of these learning objects and of the network's users. The proposed personalisation facilities include: querying learning object descriptions to return results tailored towards users' individual goals and preferences; the ability to define views over the learning object metadata; facilities for defining new composite learning objects and automatically deriving their descriptions; and facilities for subscribing to personalised event and change notification services. The personalisation facilities are realised using a combination of Semantic Web technologies including RDF/S, RQL, RVL, and RDF ECA rules.
