OntoStrength: An Ontology for Psychomotor Strength Development


An ontology is a formal, explicit description of concepts and relations from a domain while considering underlying properties, restrictions, and instances.With the advancement of the Semantic Web, the rise of the Educational Semantic Web, and the lack of uniformity between approaches for knowledge representation, ontologies are becoming more and more popular, including adaptive learning environments such as the Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs). OntoStrength is an ontology developed to support the Selfit ITS, a platform that aims to improve the fundamental human psychomotor skills and, more specifically, bio-motor strength abilities. The goal of Selfit is to prevent the negative consequences of a sedentary lifestyle and accidents involving inadequate strength skills. Most ontologies in the sports domain support the development of digital solutions for sports performance and data collected during competitions. In contrast, OntoStrength’s goal is to contribute to the development of digital solutions dedicated to bio-motor strength ability analysis. OntoStrength considers other bio-motor skills like speed, endurance, or flexibility, as well as other activities like muscle analysis, movement patterns, or training load management, to support sport, professional and daily-life activities. OntoStrength enables the personalization of strength development programs in the Selfit ITS by providing a comprehensive data layer for its student, domain, and tutoring models.
