Abstract

Ontologies provide a means to classify some aspects of the world and then to reason on that classification. Recently, various authors have recommended the use of ontologies that classify subject domains, courses, learning objects and educational processes in E-Learning systems and processes. One promising application of ontologies is in the general management of entire curricula and in program reviews. In this paper we present a strategy for managing, inspecting and monitoring a full course of study (a program), that will aid in the quality assurance of didactic offerings and thereby help improve the overall quality of these offerings.
