Abstract: The paper presents an ontological approach for enabling semantic-aware video retrieval framework facilitating the user access to desired contents. Through the ontologies, the system will express key entities and relationships describing videos in a formal machine-processable representation. An ontology-based knowledge representation could be used for content analysis and concept recognition, for reasoning processes and for enabling user-friendly and intelligent multimedia content retrieval.

Keywords: semantic web applications; semantics; e-learning portals; video annotation; video retrieval; ontology; electronic learning; online learning; knowledge representation; multimedia.
