The Internet is one of the top sources of information. But how do we search online and how can we use the internet for learning? This is the topic of the webinar "SALIENT, search as learning research" on 10 December 2020 at 14:00. Dr. Anett Hoppe from the Visual Analytics research group of the TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology will explain how these search processes are being studied in the interdisciplinary research project SALIENT in order to develop systems that recommend appropriate and personalized learning content to users in the future.
