Using Ontologies for eLearning Personalization



Learning is a cognitive activity that differs from student to student. Most of the eLearning systems do not take into account individual aspects of students, ignoring the different needs that are specific to existing cognitive profiles. In this paper, we present an approach to eLearning personalization based on an ontology. We developed a student model that is integrated with an ontology, enabling the personalization system to guide the student's learning process. The developed model monitors the student's progress so that it can update the concepts known by the student and decides which concepts s/he should learn next.
