Information literacy: Ontology structures user-learner profile in online learning environment

Abstract : The research work's objective is to present the preliminary results of work in progress on the design of a semantic ontology for the user-learner digital profile, the OntoPAUN. The latter is developed in the context of thematic digital universities. These are online learning environments for the purpose of creating Open Educational Resources (OER) as well as improving information literacy. The thematic digital universities are supported by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and designed for learners and teachers. The user-learner digital profile refers to the representation of a person's identity on the Web. The OntoPAUN's usefulness is to structure the user's digital profile in these learning environments and establish relationships among concepts. For the time being, the applications resulting from this ontology are two Web pages, namely the user-learner's registration profile and dashboard (Verbert et al., 2013). User-learners from any culture, social environment or with disabilities could use the OntoPAUN and its Web pages to customize as well as analyze their search for OER. To our knowledge, research projects addressing this subject are limited.
