OASIS - Organizing, Annotating, and Serving Information to Students
In CUbiC under the iCare project at Arizona State University, in partnership with Arizona's Rehabilitation Services Administration, we are developing a digital library system for delivering textbooks and other course materials to postsecondary education students, who are blind or visually impaired, throughout the state of Arizona. This system is called: OASIS (Organizing, Annotating, and Serving Information to Students). The ultimate goal of OASIS is to enable these students to effectively use relevant content from multiple sources such as books, notes, journal articles, and web sources as they study and do research for their courses.
OASIS provides a fully accessible digital library to support these students in successfully accessing not only their own textbooks and course materials, but books and other educational materials as well; and offers an innovative set of tools to facilitate learning such as automatic summarizations, user generated virtual books, automated content recommendations during searches, and an easy to use upload tool.
