The questions of developing design systems for educational programs and their components are considered. A design approach based on specialized ontologies that establish the relationships between the program components in different paradigms is proposed. The tools of adjusting the detail level of the ontologies are described. An architecture of a curriculum design system that operates within the constructed ontologies is proposed.
