A relevant issue on linking services based on information retrieval techniques is how to define scopes that delimit homogeneous information so as to obtain good results. An interesting way to achieve this is to provide such scope delimitation by means of context information. This process of linking can be tailored according to contextual constraints explicitly provided by users. We propose linking services enhanced with context information captured from everyday presentations. We present the LinkDigger context service, which creates hyperlinks following information obtained from users. As a result, different hypertexts can be defined upon the same information.

    ABSTRACT: There has been increased interest on the impact of mobile devices such as PDAs and Tablet PCs in introducing new pedagogical approaches and active learning experiences. We propose an intelligent system that efficiently addresses the inherent subjectivity in student perception of note taking and information retrieval. We employ the idea of cross indexing the digital ink notes with matching electronic documents in the repository. Latent Semantic Indexing is used to perform document and page level indexing. Thus for each retrieved document, the user can go over to the relevant pages that match the query. Techniques to handle problems such as polysemy (multiple meanings of a word) in large databases, document folding and no match for query are discussed. We tested our system for its performance, usability and effectiveness in the learning process. The results from the exploratory studies reveal that the proposed system provides a highly enhanced student learning experience, thereby facilitating high test scores.
