i-OntoLearning: Ontological support for rich learning
Many university and college programs have a rich repository of learning resources. These resources could range from multi-media material to simple text documents, from powerpoint slides to web based applets. However, they are created by different authors and are usually accessible by the students registered for the courses taught by these authors. In order to enable students to discover the relationships that exist amongst these resources, we have designed i-OntoLearning, a system based on the Computing Ontology and a Metadata Ontology which we have created. This platform supports learning through the ability to infer relationships within the curricula as well as with the learning resources. As more resources are added to the system, further interesting relationships can be discovered. This paper focuses on the application of semantic web technologies including ontology design and queries on these ontologies.

Abstract

Many university and college programs have a rich repository of learning resources. These resources could range from multi-media material to simple text documents, from powerpoint slides to web based applets. However, they are created by different authors and are usually accessible by the students registered for the courses taught by these authors. In order to enable students to discover the relationships that exist amongst these resources, we have designed i-OntoLearning, a system based on the Computing Ontology and a Metadata Ontology which we have created. This platform supports learning through the ability to infer relationships within the curricula as well as with the learning resources. As more resources are added to the system, further interesting relationships can be discovered. This paper focuses on the application of semantic web technologies including ontology design and queries on these ontologies.
