KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION FRAMEWORK FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

Milan Segedinac, Goran Savić, Zora Konjović

Abstract

This paper presents the formal representation of knowledge used in curriculum development process. Four curriculum components are represented separately: learning objectives, learning experiences, the organization of learning experiences and evaluation of learning outcomes. Learning objectives are formally represented using ontologies. Learning experiences consist of learning objects and achievements assessment instruments (tests) and they are specified using IMS Content Packaging standard. Learning experiences are mapped to the learning objectives ontology using XML. For describing instructional design, we proposed a special-purpose language implemented using XML notation. The achievement of a learning objective is assessed using test items linked to this particular objective. Such an approach allows more flexible management of the curriculum as a whole and easier modification of the particular components than in classical approach.
