OpenLearn is a large online educational repository which can be used as a resource for developing and testing Question Generation (QG) systems. OpenLearn is described in detail and its advantages are discussed. To illustrate the use of OpenLearn for QG, a QG system, Ceist, is presented which generates questions from OpenLearn content. Ceist is also offered as a case study for how existing NLP tools can be used to build a QG system, and should provide useful information to those considering the development of their own QG system.
