The authors demonstrate how to use Semantic Web technologies to improve the state-of-the-art in online learning environments and bridge the gap between students on the one hand, and authors or teachers on the other. The ontological framework presented here helps formalize learning object context as a complex interplay of different learning-related elements and shows how we can use semantic annotation to interrelate diverse learning artifacts. On top of this framework, the authors implemented several feedback channels for educators to improve the delivery of future Web-based courses.
