In Japan, the interest in IT education is continuously growing. Most goals of the IT education involve metaability, which cannot be learned by the traditional Japanese instructional methods. It is difficult to design effective IT education material. Moreover, there are only a few specialists in IT education. For this reason, it is necessary and important to provide IT instructors with a powerful help system that can locate and provide access to a variety of useful information resources. We present a system that reconstructs the resources according to the various viewpoints expressed in the ontology of IT education goals. Further, we propose an ontology alignment framework.
