Learning object repositories play a key role in the vision of reusable learning contents and learning designs, serving as providers for learning-oriented artefacts. Nevertheless, current metadata creation practices result in artefact collections that lack machine-understandable metadata, which seriously hampers opportunities for reuse. Semantic Web ontologies can be used to improve the quality of learning object metadata records, but they are not enough by themselves. In order to respond to…

Web service to support recovery of learning objects in repositories and federations

TLDR
A Web service for evaluation of LO metadata automatically is proposed, which receives a list with the results of a search and returns it to organized according to the quality level of metadata, which is established through the application of metrics for Evaluation of metadata.

Schemes and Practices of Learning Object Repository: A Literature Review

TLDR
This paper discusses lacuna of LOR’s and describes need of semantics web architecture in Learning object repositories through Semantic Learning Object Repository (SLOR).

Metadata quality issues in learning repositories

TLDR
This dissertation proposes a set of methods that can be deployed throughout the lifecycle of a repository to ensure that metadata generated from content providers are of high quality and validated the MQACP approach by applying it on two cases of a Cultural and a Research Federation of repositories.

A Semantic Infrastructure to Support a Federation of Agricultural Learning Repositories

This paper outlines how Semantic Web technologies are being adopted, specialized, and put in practice in order to set up a technical infrastructure that will facilitate sharing and reusing of

Review of challenges in content extraction in web based personalized learning content management systems

TLDR
The paper discusses the challenges that are being faced by Web-Based LCMS with regards to content extraction and examines some of the existing Learning Content Management Systems with emphasis on Architecture and Design Issues.

Extending SCORM LOM

TLDR
The evolution of LOM standards over the last 14 years is shown and the diagram highlights the synergy that existed between the various LOM projects.

From Content Management to E-Learning Content Repositories

TLDR
This chapter explores the relationship of traditional content management systems and the broader scope of virtual learning environments, including aspects of metadata standards, content personalization, the use of semantic web techniques and ontologies, theUse and annotation of learning resources and the possibilities offered by theUse of Web 2.0 technologies.

Education and Learning in the Semantic Web

TLDR
This work offers a systematic taxonomy of the current state of theart along with the relevant future research challenges in the field and an objective assessment of the critical aspects for the successful integration of semantic web applications in learning, aiming to assist researchers in positioning their future work and contribution in the area.

Comparison of knowledge during the assembly process of learning objects

TLDR
The conceptual framework OntoGlue provides an enhanced description of the LOs, which permits their search and reuse by considering requirements and competencies, and the definition of the associated knowledge in terms of classes of ontologies, possibly related by mappings permits an advanced comparison of requirements and Competencies during assembly and search processes.

Specifying semantic conformance profiles in reusable learning object metadata

TLDR
The concept of semantic conformance profile is described as a way to specify complex run-time behaviors for such processes in a flexible way and is intended to be used in conjunction with specialized ontologies for the steps that require a complex representation.

TLDR
Learning object design by contract, a technique intended to specify learning object metadata using assertions, is described in this paper as a mean to precisely specify relationships in learning object-based activities.

On the Convergence of Formal Ontologies and Standardized E-Learning

TLDR
The practicalities of the representation of LOM metadata instances into formal ontologies are addressed, discussing the main technical and organizational issues that must be addressed for an effective integration of both technologies, and sketching some illustrative examples using modern ontology languages and a large knowledge base.

Design by Contract-Based Selection and Composition of Learning Objects

TLDR
The Design by Contract paradigm is described as a method to formally specify and drive selection and composition of contents aimed at concrete learning requirements, and an architectural mapping for such approach to Web Service technology is described.

Ontology-Based Competency Management: Infrastructures for the Knowledge Intensive Learning Organization

TLDR
This chapter describes the use of ontologies as the enabling semantic infrastructure of competency management, describing the main aspects and scenarios of the knowledge creation cycle from the perspective of its connection with competency definitions.

THE ACTUAL USE OF METADATA IN ARIADNE: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS

TLDR
The first results of the empirical analysis for the actual use that is made of metadata in Learning Object Repositories are presented, more specifically in the ARIADNE Knowledge Pool System (KPS).

Use and Abuse of Reusable Learning Objects

TLDR
This paper is to assess current definitions of the term Learning Object, to articulate the foundational principles for developing a concept of LOs, and to provide a methodology and broad set of guidelines for creating LOs.

User Interface Tactics in Ontology-Based Information Seeking

TLDR
A number of ontology-enabled search tactics that have been experienced in prototype experiments are described, along with other possible techniques that would eventually be useful, as pointed out by existing research on information seeking models.

On the Concepts of Usability and Reusability of Learning Objects

TLDR
In this article, a specific characterization of the concept of learning object usability is discussed, which places emphasis on “reusability,” the key property of learning objects residing in repositories.
