Abstract: E-Learning is the use of technology to enable people to learn anytime and anywhere. E-Learning depends on learner profile for the retrieval of relevant learning content to the learner. Learner profile describes the way in which a student learns best. It includes information on learner’s knowledge, interest, learning preferences and styles, goals, background etc. One of the main issues in constructing learner profile is semantic web. Ontology is used as a standard knowledge representation for the semantic web. This paper suggests an approach to construct ontology based learner profile including static and dynamic characteristics of the learner and update it automatically. Finally an efficient fuzzy semantic retrieval process is proposed for the efficient retrieval of information from learner profile.
