Abstract: In the past decade, ontologies have been widely used in the field of e-learning in order to create a semantic representation of knowledge and to provide a uniform structure to the course material. In order to provide a semantic representation of knowledge, this paper delineates a framework that uses an underlying ontology to structure the course material. In general, ontology-based e-learning tools are primarily static in nature, since they cannot learn new teaching materials and/or teaching strategies on their own. In order to overcome this limitation, an intelligent ontology-based e-learning system has been proposed. It possesses the ability to act in a genuinely intelligent manner by assessing the learners initially, and providing personalised suggestions to the learners indicating their strengths and weaknesses. This tool has been developed with the view of providing industry-oriented training to potential engineers and educating them on managing risks in software engineering. The constructed ontology as well as the developed system has been evaluated separately.
