    Abstract

    and interactions can occur.These rules and outcomes will be based on inference, which can draw on various kinds of logic.Design features for serious interactive online environments also require structured approaches for understanding the lexical and hermeneutic base of likely end user participant communities.By examining the unique meaning(s) and semantic associations of a community's language and communication approaches, and by identifying and classifying potential game-play entities into are presentational model, a programmer may gain rich insights to assist the articulation of entity relationships. From there it may'1 Charles Sturt University, Australia, email: cdowd@csu.edu.aube possible to build a formal Ontology which can become a basefor an epistemic serious game in the web environment.Various examples of mark-up languages over time, in particular for online news sites, provide a direct demonstration of the links between constructed language and communities of practice. A light analysis of various mark-up languages and some historic and philosophic perspectives on the construction of knowledge systems and knowledge management may well assist understanding of early software design issues for the Semantic Web. This is also a ripe time to at least raise adiscussion about the nature of knowledge, which might emerge from a collective folksonomy, perhaps generated via online newstags for links with social sites, or might be distinct doctrinal or organisational knowledge generated via a formal Ontology, such as that needed for a serious learning environment.
