Good idea to look at this. Related stuff I started here:OWL, also MOTPlus and maybe DialogPlus. Definitly OWL should be integrated. Btw you also can have a look at the Protégé ontology editor.

Yes. I intend to integrate OWL at the very least. I feel I am in a little over my head though and trying to make sense of it all. A lot of the literature very quickly jumps into mathematical expressions of entities and their relations that are beyond me. And I also want to review some editors and find some examples of simple ontologies (or at least represented simply).kalli 10:15, 25 January 2007 (MET)

Indeed ontology is a life time thing :) As far as editors go,:

  • I think MOTPlus is a good idea since it has been specifically built with educational ontologies in mind.
  • Otherwise, I do think that Protégé is quite popular (I once used a version of it to edit Topic Maps): http://protege.stanford.edu/

Btw if you want to mention a "real" ontology plus common sense reasoning assertions, you can glance at CYC. There is a mini-version that is free: http://www.cyc.com/opencyc and http://www.opencyc.org/ Daniel K. Schneider 16:39, 26 January 2007 (MET)
