Accessing A Learning Object Repository Through A Semantic Layer


This paper describes ongoing work on the issue of exploiting a Learning Object Repository, i.e., a large library of learning resources, which incorporates different and often heterogeneous types of objects, to feed activities to a Virtual Learning Community. These objects include re-usable contents that are described by means of metadata. Our proposal leans on an ontology for interpreting the annotations and suggesting the LO best fitting the community’s necessities for a given activity. The ontology, as a representation mechanism, interprets all the available knowledge and provides adequate ways of exploiting it, which include social navigation and recommendation through enhanced searching capabilities.
