  • INES at II International Symposium on OER

    Publicado em October 29th, 2012Publications

    The paper “Open Educational Resources Ontology” has been accepted for presentation at II International Symposium on OER: Issues for globalization and localization, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The work-in-progress is related to the INES project, MDAOnto System – a solution for the development of educational applications supported by model and ontologies.

    The paper will be presented in November, 26-30, 2012, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, RJ.

    Open Educational Resources Ontology
