Abstract

The ontology language RDFS and OWL are widely used in education semantic web but are limited in their mathematical expressivity. To represent the mathematical knowledge while preserving the semantic, Open Mathematical Document (OMDoc) is used as an ontology language. OMDoc is a content-based markup which focuses on representing the semantic of mathematical formulae instead of the formulae appearance. Previous researchers have demonstrated that learning style in education is effective in helping the learning process. In this research, we represent the mathematical knowledge using OMDoc format and create learning style ontology as a metadata. In metadata annotation, we use new metadata framework for OMDoc. By embedding learning style metadata, the formal semantic of metadata vocabularies is made available to OMDoc applications. We also transformed OMDoc files into HTML files.
