Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This work describes the design and implementation of a functional assistant system to support instructors in designing or re-designing their courses' curriculum. The system uses automatically generated ontologies from textbooks that reflect the structure of a specific body of knowledge. Twelve instructors participated in the generation of curricula for a programming fundamentals course using the assistant system. An initial evaluation of this tool suggests that the system successfully helped novel instructors design a new curriculum.
