Enrichment of Young Digital Planet's biology lessons

Jana Parvanova and Ilian Uzunov

Ontotext, Sirma Media, Sofia, Bulgaria

We have used biology lessons for 5th grade owned by Young Digital Planet (http://www.ydp.eu/). We have used a sample of 30 multimedia lessons. At first stage, we parsed the internal format and retrieved text attached to each page. Next, we applied a combination of entity-recognition algorithms and web crawling to fetch additional materials. Sources are mostly dbpedia and Encyclopaedia of Life (eol.org). As a result, we enriched the original multimedia application with additional links and images. When user moves accross pages of a lesson, links on the right change to reflect the content.
