The convention featured a entire application, together with an educational consultation, a keynote speak, a major tune for normal paper displays, and an - dustrial tune.

5 The ATLM e-Learning Platform Our e-learning platform makes use of an integrated set of innovative technologies to support the highly dynamic and agile mode of teaching as required by ATLM. The platform leverages on some of the newest software technologies for knowledge sharing and collaboration. This platform can supplement more traditional technologies such as forums and blackboards. The following diagram shows the front page of one of the course websites that uses the ATLM e-learning platform: Firstly, the e-learning platform makes use of open technologies, standards and Web-based services.

To our knowledge, Liu’s approach [3] was the first to explicitly point out the task of compiling a book on the Web. In their technique, they first identify the sub-topics or salient concepts of a specified topic, and then find the informative pages containing definitions and descriptions to present to the user. The process is performed in an interactive way, in which users choose the interested salient concepts to further explore. The weakness of their approach is that it lacks an explicit description of the concept structure of the specified topic.
