The advance and popularization of the Internet have introduced significant changes to the traditional methods and styles of teaching, learning and studying. Through the use of computer-mediated communication tools, virtual learning environments and online social networks are increasingly present in everyday life, showing great potential in education. This paper presents a context-sensitive Moodle plugin which allows semantic recovery of tweets and resources from external repositories. The result of the information retrieval process is a list of resources ordered by degree of relevance to the query and to the user's interest. Context definition is undertaken by identifying the Moodle discipline in which the user is interacting, along with a discipline associated ontology.
