Quanyu Wang, Xingen Yu, Guilong Li, and Guobin Lv

Abstract—The problems of too much emphasis on technology lack of people-centered educational philosophy, and the construction of the e-learning system lack of system concept and the overall view. In this paper, e-learning ecosystem models based on ontology in developed. This paper analyses the learner model specification established by the Committee of Chinese education information technology standards, the ontology-based e-learning ecological subject is constructed. After analyzing cognitive psychologists Anderson's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, ecological environment ontology is promoted. On this basis, e-learning ecosystem model is designed. The paper focus on the use of e-learning ecological ontology in modern distance education ecosystem. This paper provides theoretical support for the building of e-learning ecosystem, and the technical guidance for the design of e-learning ecosystem.

Index Terms—Ontology, e-learning ecology ontology, e-learning ecosystem.
