Towards Automatic Competence Assignment of Learning Objects
Competence-annotations assist learners to retrieve and better understand the level of skills required to comprehend learning objects. However, the process of annotating learning objects with competence levels is a very time consuming task; ideally, this task should be performed by experts on the subjects of the educational resources. Due to this, most educational resources available online do not enclose competence information. In this paper, we present a method to tackle the problem of automatically assigning an educational resource with competence topics. To solve this problem, we exploit information extracted from external repositories available on the Web, which lead us to a domain independent approach. Results show that automatically assigned competences are coherent and may be applied to automatically enhance learning objects metadata.
