Developing Learning Materials Using an Ontology of Mathematical Logic
Boyatt, Russell; Joy, Mike
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (Madrid, Spain, Oct 19-21, 2012)
Ontologies describe a body of knowledge and give formal structure to a domain by describing concepts and their relationships. The construction of an ontology provides an opportunity to develop a shared understanding and a consistent vocabulary to be used for a given activity. This paper describes the construction of an ontology for an area of mathematical logic as part of an EU Lifelong Learning project and on-going work exploring how this ontology has been used to inform the development of learning resources and appropriate structuring mechanisms. Finally, the paper discusses future work developing enhancements to a virtual learning environment to allow better integration between domain ontologies and on-line courses. (Contains 1 figure.)
