Ontology, semantic web, e-learning 518-812


Current learning standards (e.g. IEEE LOM, IMS, SCORM, CanCore) trying to adopt Semantic Web technologies to conquer web-based learning contexts. In this paper we propose a methodology for developing learning ontologies, and discuss the role of the Semantic Web in educational or learning systems. We also provide a brief overview of learning ontology, its need, development tools and process. In addition we provide representative examples of ontology-based applications or projects in education.
