An ontology for ECVET specification

In the framework of the IMPACT project, the technical team is finalizing an ontology to represent concepts of the ECVET reccomnadation and the relationships between concept. The ontology is based on the work carried out by the technical team to define an XML schema with the main elements defined by the ECVET reccomandation.

The availability of such an ontology will provide the basis to:

  • support interoperability between elearning systems;
  • semantically represent pilot projects in the ECVET domain;
  • create a dataset of ECVET projects¬† Linked with other resources in the Linked Data cloud;
  • set-up a SPARQL end-point in which information about ECVET projects can be accessible in a machine redeable way.
