Abstract

E-learning systems are often based on the notion of “course”: an interconnected set of resources aiming at presenting material related to a particular topic. Course authors do provide external links to related material. Such external links are however “frozen” at the time of publication of the course. We present an approach based on ontology definition, automatic classification and a tool for metadata navigation and automatic link generation that enriches the interconnection among courses, and presents to the student a richer variety of interconnected resources.
