Wyse, Brendan and Piwek, Paul (2009). Generating questions from OpenLearn study units. In: AIED 2009 Workshop Proceedings Volume 1: The 2nd Workshop on Question Generation, 6-9 Jul 2009, Brighton, UK.



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.
