Enhancement of learning with technology has been accelerating thanks to the advancement of information technology (IT) and the development of IT standards for learning. The purpose of this study is to build a still more advanced engineering infrastructure of utilization of instructional and learning theories for practitioners in line with such development. This paper discusses a modeling framework for instructional and learning theories based on ontological engineering and the compliance of IMS LD to theoretical knowledge.
