In this paper we argue that the effort within the context of Semantic Web research, such as RDF and DAML-S. will allow for better knowledge representation and engineering of educational systems and easier integration of e-learning with other business processes. We also argue that existing educational standards, such as SCORM and LOM could be mapped to those technologies, providing for more efficient automation of processes like educational resource annotation, and intelligent accessibility management. In this way we can use a successful combination of the technical advances outside of educational context and the existing educational standards, and allow for easier interoperability. To illustrate these issues and a solution approach we present the OntoAIMS educational environment.
