A lot of e-learning courses are offered linearly as online book supplemented by interactive media and exercises.
Therefore representing the whole content of an e-learning course by some kind of hierarchical table of content is
sufficient. When using an adaptive e-learning system, individual learning paths may be used and suggested to user, e.g. in dependence on a given answer of an exercise. This paper presents our concept how to represent such e-learning content of an adaptive system using the metaphor of a map. The work incorporates different perspectives from cartography and geomatics, pedagogy, didactics, information visualization and computer science into a practicable method for representing e-learning content as learning map using cities for learning units and buildings for knowledge units.
