Abstract

Nowadays, people tend to learn from the Web because it is convenient, and rich of free information. One significant means of learning on the Web is by submitting a query to a search engine, and browsing through the results to find relevant information. Although in many cases, the search engine works quite well, the results returned are often not appropriate for the learning purpose. In this paper, we propose 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. The validity of our approach is verified through a case study.
