Some Properties of Semantic Web in e-Learning

M. Haghshenas, H. Kabir, and M. Khademi
Abstract— Researches in the field of E-learning are represented by a broad spectrum of applications, ranged from virtual classrooms to remote courses or distance learning. E-learning is not just concerned with providing easy access to learning resources, anytime, anywhere, via a repository of learning resources, but is also concerned with supporting such features as the personal definition of learning goals, and the synchronous and asynchronous communication, and collaboration between learners and between learners and instructors. Nowadays, the web has become an important learning platform. Not only its accessibility has made it a successful environment, but also when the Semantic Web is used, learners will be able to add extra materials and links to the learning objects for their own benefit or for that of later learners. This paper discusses the potential of semantic technology for supporting learning content in E-learning environment.

Index Terms— E-Learning, ontology, semantic web, XML layer.
