Summary Threshold concepts have proven to be a useful tool in understanding a particular set of difficulties that confront students in higher education. From the viewpoint of a student threshold concepts are characterized as transformative, integrative, bounded, troublesome, and to a large extent invisible. The sematic web, among its many other advantages, holds the possibility of allowing students to successfully move beyond the threshold concepts in their chosen discipline. The nature of threshold concepts are discussed and related specifically to andragogy. A preliminary solution, which takes advantage of the features of Web 3.0, is presented.
