Keywords: Qualification Framework, ontology, Wiki


The urgency of the integration of national and European qualification frameworks for the comparing of learning outcomes for different countries is grounded. Theoretical research in this area and the tools that are built on them are analyzed. The approaches to harmonization of the National qualification framework of Ukraine with the European qualification frameworks and problems dealing with their practical use are considered. The necessity of the development of software tools oriented on comparison of these qualification frameworks based on the Semantic Web technologies is reasoned. In this work the use of ontologies for representation of learning outcomes and the Semantic Wiki technologies for structuring of the relevant information resources is proposed. A theoretical model and an algorithm for matching ontologies with Wiki-resources that enable dynamic replenishment of these ontologies and comparison of various information objects are developed. A software implementation of the proposed approach is realized.
