Applying knowledge engineering methods to didactic knowledge : first steps towards an ultimate goal
Generally, learning systems suffer from a lack of an explicit and adaptable didactic design. Since E-Learning systems are digital by their very nature, their introduction rises the issue of modeling the didactic design in a way that implies the chance to apply Knowledge Engineering Techniques (like Machine Learning and Data Mining). A modeling approach called storyboarding, is outlined here. Storyboarding is setting the stage to apply Knowledge Engineering Technologies to verify and validate the didactics behind a learning process. Moreover, didactics can be refined according to revealed weaknesses and proven excellence and successful didactic patterns can be inductively inferred by analyzing the particular knowledge processing and its alleged contribution to learning success.
