2002 Proceedings of the second ACM/IEEE-CS joint conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '02  
The knowledge represented in learning materials for the sciences is typically organized around term-based or "weakly-structured" models of concepts and their interrelationships.  ...  We We have developed a strongly-structured model of concepts for SME domains in terms of a frame-based KRS with slots and attributevalue fillers.  ...

Modelling Learning Subjects as Relationships [chapter]

Martin Doerr
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes a novel intellectual structure for the subject space of material designed for selective autodidactic learning in a large knowledge base.  ...  Informal inferences between concept hierarchies and categorical relationships are presented. The structure is implemented in a system for training of art conservators in diagnostic knowledge.  ...  Typically current systems organize the major individual concepts of the domain of discourse in a thesaurus and use them as a kind of subject headings for the learning assets (see e.g. [1] ).  ...

This article describes how to combine scientific method and practical marketing reality. The combination of modeling approach and illustrative E-learning is called Model-based Action Learning Method.  ...  The marketing students should learn how to work on a conceptual level using models and information but on the other hand he or she should learn thoroughly what marketing is all about in practice.  ...  Tools of thinking are structures, concepts and knowledge -models. Models have an important role in scientific thinking. Scientific thinking may sound strange to a practical marketing person.  ...
