This chapter introduces the development of a K-12 education ontology for e-learning environments. It presents design and implementation processes, followed by several recommendations for future directions for ontology development. E-learning environments incorporate the notion of semantic web based ontologies into their future directions. Semantic web uses ontologies to show the interconnectedness in a web environment. Ontologies are being developed in order to decrease the annotated amount of markup and increase the reliability of using computational (intelligent) agents. Within the concept of semantic mapping, domain ontology is at the core of intelligent e-learning systems. In order to achieve an ontology for K-12 education, the authors propse a domain-specific ontology PoleONTO (Personilized Ontological Learning Environment) with the emphasis on its development and incorporation into an e-learning environment.
