What’s the next big thing? The Semantic Web is, according to some tech insiders (including Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the Internet), the next big thing on the Internet. It is also, by extension, one of the innovations likely to dramatically affect virtual learning. The problem with the Semantic Web, or Web 3.0, as some are referring to it, is that it is still mainly conceptual, so practical implications are all conjecture. That said, the revolutionary potential of this change in the way the Internet functions makes it worth considering, particularly in regard to how it will affect education and online learning (2011 Horizon Report).
