UCS: Ultimate Course Search

General Session IV
Fri. 10:30am-11:15am 

Track: Breakout

Ultimate Course Search (UCS) is part of the ongoing NSF funded iSECURE project that aims to provide efficient search mechanism of integrated multimedia educational materials. Learning materials in the form of slides, lecture videos and textbooks are indexed on their learning concepts in order to enable effective search and thereby enhance student learning. With UCS, the user can visualize the segment of a video, the slides or the textbook pages where a specific learning concept is covered.  To that end, we index the textbook and the slides on leaning concepts (keywords) and index the videos on the slides.
