The development process is based on the state of the art IT technologies (metadata and ontology for knowledge manipulation, Web services, learner model, and intelligent tutoring systems). Besides interoperability and personalization, the proposed approach brings additional advantages, including: unitary interpretation of the content structure by different user categories or content providers; explicit specification of the knowledge domain, allowing the updating of the domain definition without major changes of e-learning tools and programmes; reuse of the learning objects with economical advantages by saving costs of (re)writing the content for the different course forms and strategies; reuse of the created tools in one domain in other domains; promoting the competency-based learning through the domain ontology and the relations between concepts and competencies. The results obtained in practice are very encouraging and suggest several future developments.

E-Learning Standards

As a consequence of the spread of e-learning systems, e-learning standards emerged in order to assure the conditions for running applications in different environments, and for exchanging digital content between different applications

The airline industry computer-based training committee (AICC) standard is the oldest e-learning standard and emerged from the need to create a training system specific to this industry. The AICC objectives were to assist operators in developing guidelines to promote computer training sites, interoperability, a forum for discussions on the computer-based training and information technology applied in education.
