Transcript

  • 1. Towards a Standardized Representation of Syllabi to Facilitate Sharing and Personalization of Digital Library Content Part of the research project: Personalization of Content: Bridging the gap between NSDL and its users. Funded by the National Science Foundation, USA.
  • 2. Objectives • A syllabus defines a course offering • If we could standardize information contained in syllabi, it could be used for various applications: • Personalizing digital library content • Comparing and creating new syllabi • Mobile access
  • 3. Syllabus Contents Title, Description, Instructor, Teaching Assistants, Prerequisites, Topics, Learning Objectives, Knowledge Units, Calendar, Readings, Books, Book Chapters, Articles, Papers, Instructor’s Notes, Slides, Assignments
  • 4. Syllabi published today • Published via: • Instructor’s Web site • Course management systems • University course catalogs (summary) • Format: HTML, PDF • Access: Closed or open to public
  • 5. The Adoption Problem • Chicken-and-egg situation • Solution: Crawl and parse existing syllabi • Develop a schema • Store in a repository • Develop tools & applications • Encourage creation of new syllabi conforming to schema
  • 6. Obtaining Syllabi (step 1) computer science site:edu Search
  • 7. Obtaining Syllabi (step 2) syllabus site:cs.vt.edu Search
  • 8. Categorization • Full syllabus • Partial syllabus • Syllabus entry page • Noise • Labeled 1000 documents as a training set
  • 9. Tools • Syllabus creators / editors • Syllabus repository • Community-assisted classification and error correction • Linking to Computing Curricula 2001
  • 10. Comparing Syllabi HCI SE Curriculum Theory Curriculum CC2001 CC2001 Syllabus Syllabus CS1 CS1 Syllabus CS2 Syllabus CS2
  • 11. Applications • Personalizing NSDL* content for students • Assisting instructors creating new syllabi • Syllabi overview for students • Assisting curriculum design & accreditation • Comparing programs at various schools • Mobile access to educational resources * National Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Digital Library.
  • 12. Conclusion • Leverage information already available in syllabi • Create a standardized representation • Obtain existing syllabi and create a repository • Build tools and applications to enable the use of syllabi beyond their current use
  • 13. Questions ? ?
