Abstract A systematic approach to managing knowledge is an essential pre-requisite to enable learners and knowledge seekers to access relevant material as and when required in the current Internet era. To enable effective e-learning, ontologies can play a crucial role in the management of knowledge with respect to various learning strategies. While ontologies and the semantic web, which provide for semantic links, are increasingly used in business and research, their acceptance in e-learning is still at the preliminary stage. This paper reviews the relevant literature for identification of critical ontology factors supporting various learning strategies, based on which it proposes a comprehensive model to enable efficient reuse and sharing of knowledge in an e-learning environment.
