A Concept Analysis Scheme of Simple Stories for Learning Resources through Extraction of Domain-based Multimedia Elements

Masoud U. Mwinyi, Jihad M. Alja'am, Samir Abou El-Seoud


Children with special needs face major difficulties to understand the script of stories. They cannot comprehend the words’ meaning properly. Instructors use different techniques to explain them. They read the script several times, use glossy images, symbols, and short clips. The instructors spend a lot of time searching for these elements. The preparation of every tutorial requires several hours of hard work. The objective of this work is to build a system to assist the instructor finding multimedia elements in real time that can be used during the learning sessions. The proposed system is based on a domain-oriented architecture focusing on animals and food. We use different techniques for text processing including concept analysis, key words extraction and sentence ranking. We can then determine the most significant words and sentences and generate the corresponding multimedia elements. Instructors and children can use smart devices in learning inside and outside the classroom.
