Abstract: 

The paper addresses the problem of searching relevant learning resources in social networks, shared between members, Therefore, a network of shared leaning resources is build up. We propose a distributed description logics based semantic model to share learning resources. Using the logics allows to infering additional interesting relatioships between learning resources that are not expressed by members. Moreover we provide a distributed reasoning algorithm that allows searching of all relevant learning resources in the social network.
