IE has extensive expertise in the following areas:

  • learning technology: advanced knowledge on learning technology standards (IMS-LD, SCORM), implementation of learning technology interfaces (OKI)
  • Semantic Web technology: using ontology languages as OWL, WSML, using ontology management APIs (HP Jena, Sesame).
  • Data mining: using data mining tools as Weka.
  • Social network analysis: using social net tools as Pajek.

IE has developed applications in the fields of e-learning, emergency management, healthcare systems (including a translation to OWL of OpenEHR archetypes) and cultural heritage and Tourism.
