Abstract

We describe a method for automatic generation of a learning path for education or self-education. As a knowledge base, our method uses the semantic structure view from Wikipedia, leveraging on its broad variety of covered concepts. We evaluate our results by comparing them with the learning paths suggested by a group of teachers. Our algorithm is a useful tool for instructional design process.

Keywords: Learning path, educational resources, Wikipedia, adaptive intelligent web-based educational systems, Spanish language.
