Abstract

Modern E-learning environments require a solution for providing all kinds of documents, which are stored and accessible through various systems. There is a need to share and annotate documents and make them searchable in a semantic way. This paper deals with the requirements of such a solution, and it evaluates which of existing software solutions on the market meets the needs. Features and functionalities of four software solutions (Microsoft SharePoint, W3C Annotea, Ontopia Knowledge Suite and Caringo CAStor) are compared and evaluated. Possible usage scenarios provide hints and general thoughts to put the project concept into practice. An evaluation across all considered software solutions shows clearly the advantages and disadvantages of them. It turns out that no considered software solution meets the needs perfectly.
