AUTHORING TOOLS FOR KOC - A Knowledge Repository to Teach Building Construction

German Bravo, David Cifuentes, Rafael Villazon

Abstract

Composition and authoring tools constitute fundamental instruments to facilitate the generation of new knowledge to experts in a domain, because it allows the construction of high level knowledge objects from other already existing knowledge objects. Content generators within the KOC system, a knowledge repository for construction objects based on the ArCo ontology (which covers the technical area of buildings’ construction in Architecture), can benefit significantly from this kind of tools, because they allow them to generate new complex knowledge objects, by taking advantage of the structure defined by ArCo. This paper presents three composition tools for KOC: a complex objects composer issued from structured searches, a constructive processes composer and a case study composer, all of them aiming the improvement of learning quality in the building construction technical area at the architecture and engineering schools.
