Learning support systems explore several audio-visual resources to consider individual needs and learning styles aiming to stimulate learning experiences. However, the large amount of educational content in different formats and the possibility of making them available in a fragmented way makes difficult the tasks of accessing to these resources and understanding of the concepts under study. Although, the literature has proposed approaches to explore explicit semantic representation through artifacts such as ontologies in learning support systems, this research line still requires research efforts. This master research project aims to achieve a method for recommending educational content by exploring the use of semantic annotations over textual transcriptions of video lessons. The annotations serve as metadata that express the meaning of excerpts from classes. The recommendation technique, as the main expected contribution, is based on the available annotations to define ranking content strategies from the semantic proximity of concepts. We will explore the development of software prototypes for the validation of the proposal. The solution to be obtained will be evaluated experimentally based on real-world video lesson content and should highlight the main advantages and limitations of this research. Getting more appropriate recommendations can leverage the learning process by presenting the possibility of more satisfying students experience (AU)
