Localising E-Learning Websites in the Semantic Web Era
Dimitris Kanellopoulos (University of Patras, Greece)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-61692-789-9.ch014
Recently, ontologies have been applied for localisation of e-learning content in order to promote existing learning services to semantic-aware and intelligent localisation services. This chapter presents a localisation-aware semantic e-learning approach to integrate multilingual content provision, learning process and learner personality in an integrated semantic e-learning framework. The author proposes an architecture for supporting localisation of e-learning content and describes a basis for further development of automatic localisation services that will be able to reason on top of such an explicit infrastructure.
