The paper proposes the M-OBLIGE model for building multitutor ontology-based learning environments. The model is based on local ontologies, describing the domain of each individual tutor in the environment, and external ontologies, describing more general concepts. The ontologies are used by ontology processors to decide which tutors might benefit a student who needs to learn new concepts. The model allows domain expertise to be shared, and can be used as a framework for integrating multiple

Keywords: ontologies; interoperability of web-enabled intelligent tutoring systems. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Mitrovic, A. and Devedzic, V.
