A Learning Design(LD) definition under the IMS-LD standard is a complex task for the instructor because it requires a lot of time, effort and previous knowledge of the students group over which will be defined the knowledge objectives. That is why, taking advantage from diffusion of learning objects(LO) labeling using IMS-MD standard, we have proposed to realize a knowledge engineering process, represented as an algorithm, over LO labels and user profiles to automaticaly define a domain that will be used by an intelligent planner to build a LD. This LD will be finally implemented in the ILIAS Learning Management System(LMS).
