The world education system is going to become significantly more open and flexible. Nowadays a lot of students make use of the opportunity to study at different universities located in different countries. This development leads to a strong need for services enabling search and comparison of study modules offered by colleges and universities world-wide. The approach presented in this paper aims at semantic annotation of study module descriptions available online to facilitate their semantic search and comparison. The approach makes use of a domain ontology that describes the hierarchy of knowledge items taught in various modules as well as the hierarchy of cognitive categories applied to this content. The procedure to build this ontology as well as the techniques for automation of ontology population are in the focus of this paper.
