Title: High Level Semantic Networking – Using K-Infinity to Build
a Multiontological Learning Enviroment
Author(s): Roland Böving, Udo Bleimann, Christoph Wentzel, Paul Walsh
Reference: pp361-370
Abstract: Semantic linking of learning community information brings many advantages
– the integration of various data sources, for example documents, collaborative
learning units, and the flow of information into tasks and project processes [BB10].
It is anticipated that semantic web technologies will influence the next generation of
e-learning systems and applications. By considering the learner preferences, we will
develop a system where we envisage that the needs of the students are evaluated more
efficiently and the learning will be more effective and retention will last longer. This
paper proposes a solution by using semantic technologies to find the most suitable
solution for the learner.
The virtual learning communities of the University of Applied Science Darmstadt
(h da) will be connected to the h da-Knowledge-World and benefit by the content of
this complex web-based ontology with more than 200.000 topics and over 5 million
related document objects.
This complex topic network has been created by matching all kinds of different ontologies
from the university environment. The supporting technology used for this
is k-infinit, which enables imports in RDF and OWL standards and makes further
refinements and thorough evaluation of the data possible.
