In order to capture the semantic relations existing in learning objects, we propose the use of semantic web technologies coupled with an innovative model of Open Learning Object (OpenLO). The semantic web is presented as an extension of the existing web which aims to add a semantic layer to the information currently available; it encourages a multiplicity of analyses and dynamic organizations of the information through the reasoning about the concepts and relations which are related to the information. Through the OpenLO model, users edit educational resources created by different authors, and customize the them according to their own pedagogical needs. The concepts presented in the paper are based on the experience we have done in using a Learning Object Management System, called FreeLOms, that we have developed in the framework an the European funded project SLOOP (Sharing Learning Object in an Open Perspective).
