Automatically Generating an E-textbook on the Web

Abstract

Nowadays, people tend to learn from the Web because it is convenient, and rich of free information. The main means of learning on the Web is by submitting a query to a search engine, and subsequently browsing through the returned results to find relevant information. Although in many cases, a search engine such as Google works quite well, the results returned are often not appropriate for the learning purpose. In this paper, we present a novel approach to automatically generate an E-textbook for a user specified topic hierarchy. Such a technology can ease the learning process to a great extent.
