    In this paper we present an ontology- oriented authoring support system for Web-based courseware. This is an elaboration of our approach to knowledge classification and indexing in the previously developed system AIMS (Agent-based Information Management System) aimed at supporting students while completing learning tasks in a Web-based learning/training environment. By introducing ontology- based layers in the courseware authoring architecture we aim at using subject domain ontology as a basis for formal semantics and reasoning support in performing generic authoring tasks. We also focus on cooperative authoring, which allows re-usage and sets the basis for authoring collaboration. To exemplify our method we define a set of generic tasks related to concept- based courseware authoring and present their ontological support by the newly added operational and assistant layers in the AIMS architecture.
