framework for standard-based, ontology-aware courseware design and development. In this paper, we propose a new approach for developing ontology compliant learning objects. A set of ontology-based rules is applied for building ontology-aware learning material. The proposed e-learning environment is based on IEEE-LTSC LOM (Learning Object Metadata) standard. In this paper, the LOM is extended with ontology related metadata that provides common vocabulary for domain knowledge representation and conceptual information about embedded content. Thus, the use of ontology provides a great potential for exchanging learning material, facilitating collaborative learning, and efﬁ ciently retrieving context-based information from learning object repositories available on the web.
