Abstract: The benefits of collaboration in learning have widely been discussed in the literature. Our position is that location-based social networks can facilitate location-based group formation for learners and support face-to-face collaboration. In this paper, we present a methodology (LearNet) that is focused on the learner’s past and current location(s) as a key criterion for recommending peers for collaboration. LearNet is a component of OnLocEd, a location-based social networking model for online learners that can help learners discover content, events, and people in proximity to their current location. LearNet utilizes OnLocEd’s location-based features to recommend learner group forming in the social navigation network system (SoNavNet).
