Abstract

Ontology has been receiving considerable attention in the learning objects research community. This paper discusses the key concepts of ontology of learning objects repository and proposes an ontological model for pedagogical knowledge sharing. The ontological model specifies a generic organizational structure for learning objects repository based on pedagogical design categories. An ontology that actualizes such a structure allows the user of the learning objects repository to play an active role in pedagogical development through searching semantically relevant learning objects. An example of ontology for pedagogical knowledge sharing is used to illustrate the concepts of the development and use of ontologies of learning objects repository.
