Abstract—According to the development of new technologies
of the Web, there are many researches incorporating web
technologies into e-learning environment. Especially, ontology
engineering has been applied to invent the semantic models of
various learning entities. We have focused on the design of the
integrated learning ontology conceptualizing multilevel
knowledge structures, such as curriculum, syllabus, learning
subject, and materials. In this paper, we present the designed
curriculum ontology and syllabus ontology in detail. In addition,
we propose a syllabus integration and classification method
based on the definition of the semantic model of the syllabus.
This approach has the contribution in terms of adaptive concept
sequencing and syllabus sharing.
Index Terms—Adaptive learning path, curriculum, learning ontology, syllabus.
