The semantic web, which has been evolving continuously, has focused into the conceptualization and semantic relationships of data to enable the web of data rather than human-readable web. E-learning also has been evolving through incorporating various web technologies like information representation and retrieval, social networking, and cooperative communication. There are many ontological approaches that have been suggested to construct the semantic relationships between learning materials. In this paper, we consider the semantic representation of the fundamental information of learning domains like curriculum and syllabus. We propose a layered structure of learning ontologies, which are composed of curriculum ontology, syllabus ontology, learning subject ontology and learning concept ontology. In addition, we define a semantic structure of syllabus to support adaptive learning sequencing based on the syllabus.
Keywords: Curriculum, Learning Ontology, Sequencing, Syllabus
