Abstract

Studying abroad has become an important asset in learning languages and acquiring intercultural competences. This results in a growing need for transparency of curricula. But not only international students need to get a fast overview of study programs in order to make well-informed decisions. This is why highly usable curriculum visualizations should complement textual documents and support students and lecturers in navigating through curricula for the sake of fast orientation. This paper presents a case study on a human centered approach to developing a tool for curriculum visualization based on the representation of the curriculum as an OWL Lite ontology.
