Abstract: Online communities and networked learning provide teachers with social learning opportunities to interact and collaborate with others in order to develop their personal and professional skills. In this paper, Learning Networks are presented as an open infrastructure to provide teachers with such learning opportunities. However, with the large amount of learning resources produced everyday, teachers need to find out what are the most suitable resources for them. In this paper, recommender systems are introduced as a potential solution to address this issue. Unfortunately, most of the educational recommender sys- tems cannot make accurate recommendations due to the sparsity of the educa- tional datasets. To overcome this problem, we propose a research approach that describes how one may take advantage of the social data which are obtained from monitoring the activities of teachers while they are using our social rec- ommender.
