Abstract
Long study terms and a large number of students who do not successfully finish their academic programs are damaging the national economies to a large tune. In addition, personal study guidance to attenuate these problems is very expensive, too. Misunderstanding of examination regulations and a possible adversely balanced supply and demand of courses can be reasons for increasing average study terms. In this paper, we describe how technology enhanced learning can help to save expenses in this field. Our approach is based upon an ontological representation of academic programs and examination regulations. It can help students in planning their curricula and identifying the contents of academic programs as well as academic boards to forecast the number of students which will presumably take a certain course in a certain term.
