Abstract

As more educational resources become available online, it is possible to acquire more up-to-date knowledge and information. We propose BBookX, a novel computer facilitated system that automatically and collaboratively builds free open online books using publicly available educational resources such as Wikipedia. BBookX has two separate components: one creates an open version of existing books by linking different book chapters to Wikipedia articles, while anotherĀ  with an interactive user interface supports interactive real-time book creation where users are allowed to modify a generated book from explicit feedback.
