Title: Ontologies for eLearning
Author(s): Bartlomiej Polakowski, Krzysztof Amborski
Reference: pp211-221
Keywords: ontology, elearning, personalization, feedback
Abstract: Learning is one of these activities that differ from one person to another. However most of the eLearning systems do not include any mechanisms that could support pedagogical diversity. The individual aspects of the students and their needs are ignored what reflects in worse quality of learning. In this paper, we present the newest trends in eLearning systems, directed on dynamic knowledge acquisition, and personalization of presentation. The key role in this solution is use of ontologies as methods for knowledge representation. We present how an ontology can be used in a learning environment in order to give the student the content that will fit his needs and support him during the learning process.
