Readers will find several papers that address high-level issues in the use of technology in education, for
example architecture and design frameworks for building online education materials or tools. Several other
chapters report novel approaches to intelligent tutors or adaptive systems in educational settings. A number of
chapters consider many roles for social computing in education, from simple computer-mediated
communication support to more extensive community-building frameworks and tools. Finally, several chapters
report state-of-the-art results in tools that can be used to assist educators in critical tasks such as content
presentation and grading.
