Didactical Ontologies

Steffen Mencke, Reiner Dumke


Ontologies are a fundamental concept of the Semantic Web envisioned by Tim Berners-Lee [1]. Together with explicit representation of the semantics of data for machine-accessibility such domain theories are the basis for intelligent next generation applications for the web and other areas of interest [2]. Their application for special aspects within the domain of e-learning is often proposed to support the increasing complexity ([3], [4], [5], [6]). So they can provide a better support for course generation or learning scenario description [7]. By the modeling of didactics-related expertise and their provision for the creators of courses many improvements like reuse, rapid development and of course increased learning performance become possible due to the separation from other aspects of e-learning platforms as already proposed in [8].
