This article describe how to combine automatic planning techniques and web semantics technology to organize, design and customize (personalize) by composing learning route objects for e-learning. The purpose of automatic planning is an unanticipated creation of a sequence plan subordinated to learning objects (i.e. learning route) which is attained from other pre-existing objects (i.e. composition); on the other hand, the paradigm of web semantics is used to deal with the significant heterogeneity expressed among a diversity of mental models of faculty members, students and authors of their own learning objects.
