Abstract

This paper describes a working prototype which illustrates how socially constructed knowledge (specifically through collaborative tagging) can support domain experts to enrich ontological domain representations. E-learning has a particular requirement for a simple yet reliable ontology enrichment approach since domain experts usually lack knowledge engineering skills and domain representations are undergoing constant refinement. Our prototype serves to demonstrate our belief that the user interface of semantic-rich systems must be intuitive and necessarily simplistic, and provide support to the user at each step of the enrichment process.
