Widespread connectivity of the internet over PCs and Laptops has increased the use of the World Wide Web for educational purposes. There are educational resources broker systems based on educational meta-data standards, which search, locate and deliver educational resources. In this paper, we justify the need of a broker system that can also provide collaborative sharing of educational resources, along with knowledge representation behind those educational resources among and within educational…

Application of Semantic Web Concepts to Intelligent Tutoring Systems
The combined use of research insights received from all the three fields, together with Semantic Web technology and AI techniques, would enhance intelligence for tutoring systems on the Web.
Support for Exploring Concepts and Locating Information Resources
A student-oriented visualizer-cum-editor for locating information through topic maps inspired by the idea of knowledge as a network of propositions and offers a provision to visualize reified associations between "topics" and easy linking of such RAs to relevant documents.


Adaptation in Open Corpus Hypermedia
The proposed system is based on an indexing concept for various information resources and a Bayesian Network engine for calculating estimations on a user's changing knowledge and implements constructivist teaching approaches, establishes conceptual models for designing courses and enables guided tours, intelligent example retrieval and further adaptive navigation support.
A Framework for Adaptive E-Learning Based on Distributed Re-usable Learning Activities
The KnowledgeTree is a framework for adaptive Elearning based on distributed re-usable learning activities that will bridge the gap between the information power of modern educational material repositories and the just-in-time delivery and personalization power of ITS and AH technologies.
TM4L: Creating and browsing educational topic maps
TM4L, an environment for building, maintaining and using standards-based, ontology-aware e-learning repositories based on the idea that concept-driven access to learning material implemented as a topic map can bridge the gap between a learner and targeted knowledge is described.
An Architecture for Web-based e-Learning Promoting Re-usable Adaptive Educational e-Content
The proposed architecture of the European IST Project KOD “Knowledge on Demand” is presented, and the elements of the KOD prototype system in use are demonstrated.
Towards knowledge discovery through context explication
A continuum of contextExplication is introduced, which comprises different relations between information objects and its contexts by means of their degree and ease of context explication, and is evaluated for knowledge discovery in customer process oriented portals.
Personalization in distributed e-learning environments
This paper shows how to realize personalized learning support in distributed learning environments based on Semantic Web technologies by proposing a service-based architecture for establishing personalized e-Learning, where personalization functionality is provided by various web-services.
A student's assistant for open e-Learning
The paper offers a structured description of a student's assistant designed to identify relevant information from the supplementary corpus in an e-Learning context where student's learning styles and personalization issues are discussed in this context.
Open Corpus Adaptive Educational Hypermedia
This article analyzes the open corpus problem in a popular arena: adaptive hypermedia systems with an emphasis on education, and discusses how solution strategies can be successfully employed in the future, enabling adaptive hyper media techniques within open, dynamic information spaces, such as the Semantic Web.
Creating a topic maps based e-learning system on introductory physics
An e-Learning Topic Maps system that consists of three main domains, i.e., physics subjects, learning resource types, and learning record types, was created to improve the system extensible in physics related knowledge and in the types of associations between subjects.
