Aligning and MErging Ontology in Al-Quran Domain
Mohammad Alqahtani, Eric Atwell

Speaker wasn’t available.

A formal ontological model of creativity for supporting and sharing creative insights of ‘digital living artifacts’
Patricia Charlton

Part of MC Squared, a project combining mathematics and creativity. They defined creativity via 5 concepts: elaboration, fluency, flexibility, originality, usefulness. The first three are what you find in the process, but the last two are what you find in the product/result.

They worked with the people who were making the resources for the students, and found out what terminology and processes they use (the learning pathway). Then ontology concepts were created and fed back to the original group until the ontology was finished. This work was then added back into the MC Squared project.
