The Web provides not only several data sources with useful and relevant information with e-Learning purposes, but also information that is not easy to retrieve. The web of linked data is a repository based on semantic technologies. Several researchers have been oriented to this kind of interoperable e-Learning repositories and establish that the Linked Data approach has the potential to fulfill the e-Learning vision of Web-scale interoperability of e-Learning resources as well as highly personalized and adaptive e-Learning applications.
