Abstract

We report on an ongoing project which aims at improving the effectiveness of retrieval and accessibility of learning object within learning management systems and learning object repositories. The project Language Technology for eLearning approaches this task by providing Language Technology based functionalities and by integrating semantic knowledge through domain-specific ontologies. We will report about the development of a keyword extractor and a domain-specific ontology, the integration of these modules into the learning management system ILIAS and the validation of these tools which assesses their added value in the scenario of searching learning objects across different languages.
