In this paper we present SWLinker, a system that aims to empower browsing of Web learning resources by the integration of Semantic Web technologies. It leverages the synergy of learning objects (LOs) on the Semantic Web and ontology based dynamic linking in order to enrich Web pages with semantic layers of complementary knowledge. Furthermore, we demonstrate how SWLinker can support collaborative browsing by enabling context based matching in order to assemble effective groups of co-learners.
