The Knowledge Life Cycle for e-learning

Millard, David, Tao, Feng, Doody, Karl, Woukeu, Arouna and Davis, Hugh, Dicheva, Darina and Aroyo, Lora(eds.) (2006) The Knowledge Life Cycle for e-learning International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Lifelong Learning: Special Issue on Application of Semantic Web Technologies in E-learning, 16, (1/2), pp. 110-121.

Record type: Article


In this paper, we examine the semantic aspects of e-learning from both pedagogical and technological points of view. We suggest that if semantics are to fulfil their potential in the learning domain then a paradigm shift in perspective is necessary, from information-based content delivery to knowledge-based collaborative learning services. We propose a semantics driven Knowledge Life Cycle that characterises the key phases in managing semantics and knowledge, show how this can be applied to the learning domain and demonstrate the value of semantics via an example of knowledge reuse in learning assessment management.
