With the increased dependence on online learning platforms and educational resource repositories, a unified representation of digital learning resources becomes essential to support a dynamic and multi-source learning experience. We introduce the EduCOR ontology, an educational, career-oriented ontology that provides a foundation for representing online learning resources for personalised learning systems. The ontology is designed to enable learning material repositories to offer learning path… Expand

Integration of Open Educational Resources Using Semantic Platform
The design, construction and validation of the semantic platform (MIIDAS) are proposed, considering two case studies of higher-level educational institutions (civil and military schools), and the results of validation are presented through the development of evaluation instruments. Expand
Ontology-Based Personalized Course Recommendation Framework
A novel approach that personalizes course recommendations that will match the individual needs of users, and shows that a filtering algorithm that uses hierarchically related concepts produces better outcomes compared to a filtering method that considers only keyword similarity. Expand
KnowEdu: A System to Construct Knowledge Graph for Education
A system, called KnowEdu, to automatically construct knowledge graph for education, which adopts the neural sequence labeling algorithm on pedagogical data to extract instructional concepts and employs probabilistic association rule mining on learning assessment data to identify the educational relations between the concepts.

A learning object ontology repository to support annotation and discovery of educational resources using semantic thesauri
This work introduces the notion of a learning object ontology repository that can help towards their publication, discovery and reuse and builds a set of extensions and workflows on top of contemporary ontology management tools, such as WebProtégé, that can make it suitable as alearning object ontologies repository.

Ontologies in education – state of the art
A literature review of papers from the last five years collected from the IEEE Xplore database, analysed and categorized based on the use of ontologies for: curriculum modelling and management, describing learning domains, learning data, and e-learning services. Expand
A Hybrid Knowlegde-Based Approach for Recommending Massive Learning Activities
This paper proposes a hybrid knowledge-based recommender system based on ontology for recommendation of e-learning activities to learners in the context of MOOCs, and uses ontology to model and represent the knowledge about the domain model, learners and learning activities. Expand
An ontology based modeling framework for design of educational technologies
This paper proposes an ontology based framework for systematic modeling of different aspects of instructional design knowledge based on domain patterns and presents ontologies for modeling goals, instructional processes and instructional material. Expand
Review of ontology-based recommender systems in e-learning
The comprehensive survey in this paper gives an overview of the research in progress using ontology to achieve personalization in recommender systems in the e-learning domain. Expand
