Research works in the field of E-Learning are represented by a broad spectrum of applications, ranged from virtual classrooms to remote courses or distance learning. E-Learning is the use of technology to enable people to learn anytime and anywhere. The major industrial firms and academic and research institutions have started to think seriously about the use and applications of semantic web technology in which information in machine-process able form can coexist and complement the current web with better enabling computers and people to work in co-operation. E-learning is one of the domains which may benefit from this new web technology. This paper presents the state of the art application of Semantic Web technologies in e-learning and the improvements achieved by the use of such technologies.
