Collection of Web Multimedia Teaching Resources Using Ontology

Mohamed Alhawiti and Yasser Abdelhamid
Abstract—The World Wide Web has a huge amount of e-learning resources in the various branches of science, and it is available in the form of textbooks, presentations, video tutorials, pictures and audio lectures. No doubt that these resources would help students understand academic courses easily, especially those courses that need training and practical activities, like the computer science courses. It also helps the instructor to clarify his ideas in an interesting and innovative way.
Searching for the available and suitable resources in the World Wide Web is perhaps one of the most difficult and time consuming tasks, as it requires the exact specification of keywords that characterize each topic in the course syllabus. Collecting such material manually from scratch for each course in a specific domain of knowledge is considered expensive and time consuming effort.
Ontology is the explicit formal specifications of the terms and relations among them in a specific domain. It defines a common vocabulary for researchers who need to share information in a specific domain. It is perhaps the key solution to the problems related to the knowledge sharing and reuse, as it includes machine-interpretable definitions of basic concepts in that domain and relations among them.
In this paper, a system is proposed to enable instructors to collect e-learning multimedia resources from the World Wide Web and link them automatically to the topics listed in the syllabus of the intended course using the Ontology of the domain of knowledge related to the that course.

Index Terms—Automatic retrieval of educational multimedia resources, information retrieval, knowledge sharing and reuse, ontology-based annotation.
