DEVELOPMENT OF A SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR UNIVERSITY COURSE SELECTION USING SEMANTIC WEB TECHNOLOGY

Minoru Nakayama, Jun Hoshito

Abstract

The authors proposed a support system for university students to create their own course schedules using semantic web technology. The system provides course information, such as syllabus, students' assessment scores and reviews, which are RDF based ontology, while participants create their own course schedules. A prototype system was developed for course selections of two departments, and its effectiveness was determined. As a result, the number of courses selected increased significantly, and participants' subjective responses were encouraged when they consulted the system.
