AbstractEducational systems are gradually incorporating semantic web technologies aiming to provide a more adaptable, personalized and intelligent learning environment. In fact, there is a signiûcant interest within the AIED community about the evolution of e-learning in this direction. This is driven by the hope that the use of Semantic Web (SW) technologies in educational systems can help the accomplishment of AAAL: Anytime, Anywhere, Anybody Learning where most of the WWW resources are reusable learning objects supported by standard technologies and learning is facilitated by intelligent pedagogical agents. Motivated by this trend, our paper presents an overview of the ûeld of the Semantic Web in Education considering some of the main research challenges, architecture and standards, and showing how the use of ontologies can enhance the potential for making AAAL really meaningful to the learners in the SW era.
