Incremental and Iterative Agile Methodology (IIAM): Hybrid Approach for Ontology Design towards Semantic Web Based Educational Systems Development

Santhosh John, Nazaraf Shah, and Leonid Smalov
Abstract—A number of Semantic Web based system initiatives have been emerging in various fields such as e-governance, healthcare and e-Learning. These initiatives were aimed at incorporating Semantic Web resources for greater adaptability, robustness and seamless services with easy integration of interoperable systems. Ontologies play a vital role in the realization of Semantic Web vision. Semantic Web initiatives based on ontology have emerged as a promising solution to most engineering problems which occur in these fields. However, current efforts in Semantic Web based Educational Systems (SWBES) are focusing mainly on the combination of two popular modalities of learning: web-based educational systems such as e-Learning Management Systems (e-LMS) and Artificial Intelligence in Education Systems (AIED). This research focuses on an ontology driven approach for a SWBES. An Incremental and Iterative Agile Methodology (IIAM) derived from matured software engineering process models have been used for the ontology development. This paper explains the philosophical and engineering aspects of the newly derived methodology. The stages and framework of the methodology have been applied to develop an educational ontology. Ontology organizes the learning hierarchy of Java Programming Language Protégé has been used as an ontology editing tool and an appropriate descriptive language, Web Ontology Language (OWL), was used for the customization.

Index Terms—Java programming, methodology, ontology development, semantic web.
