Abstract—University education is becoming more
student-centered and personalized in recent years, whereas
connections between professional skills and learning outcomes
are recognized vaguely. The article proposes an approach to
create relations between skills that students acquire in a higher
education process and those required in various careers. The
approach makes it possible to trace consistency between course
material, educational programs, and professions. Thus, the
implementation of skills and interdisciplinary connections
allows to build the most relevant individual learning tracks for
a specific career and provides students with valuable
recommendations. The proposed approach is implemented in
ITMO University’s (Russia) web service “Educational Program
Maker,” initially designed for education process management.
The system ensures the development of educational program
elements, provides a platform for describing relations between
educational entities, and enables users to choose a curriculum
for a specific profession.
Index Terms—Graph model, individual learning pathway, professional skills, web development.
