Ontology Description
With the evolution of Semantic Web, researchers in the area of education envisioned a promising future for education. Applying semantic web technologies in education has the potential to offer tangible benefits in the area and to change the current education mode. This work describes the methodology and development process of an educational ontology acting as a data model for concepts and entities within an academic setting, enabling also the annotation of potentially available resources. The developed ontology aims to conceptualize educational entities within Curriculum and Syllabus with appropriate coverage and quality, in order to support rich services on top for improving curriculum management and automatically enabling syllabus semantic processes. The generated ontology aims to be highly transferable and reusable to other institutions, thus, it can be found online.
