Abstract: In the last years artificial intelligence (AI) approaches have been proposed by the knowledge engineers in the context of educational and e-learning technologies. These approaches offer intelligent methodologies, techniques, and algorithms that can help solving problems in a variety of education/ learning/training domains. In recent years, network-based teaching and learning has become widespread, with bespoke solutions by individual institutions and standardizing initiatives for learning technologies. The variety of AI methodologies enable the design of a robust and new techniques for managing, representing, accumulating, understanding ,discovering ,and updating knowledge in e-Learning knowledge-based systems. This talk presents the following intelligent approaches and methodologies: (a) case-based reasoning, (b) intelligent data mining and knowledge discovery, and (c) ontological engineering . Current research topics and promising application areas are discussed as well.
