    Social tags offer a novel aspect to study learning resources, its metadata and how users interact with them. This paper investigates the impact of social tagging on the discovery of digital learning resources in a multilingual context. The main hypothesis is that the self-organisation aspect of a social tagging system helps users discover learning resources more efficiently and that the user-generated tags make the system, which operates in a multilingual context, more flexible and robust.
