By expanding the Open Expert software to assimilate data and auto generate learning paths we enable low cost and free open education on a vast scale.

We load the textbook electronically. Stanford Natural Language Processing parses it into "thoughts". Sentences are given importance values. The most important sentence of each page is placed with important sentences from 4 other pages in random order for learner selection.

It repeats for each page until the end of the textbook. The learner reads one page at a time and then selects the sentence from the page just read from the list of five sentences.

If the correct sentence is selected the learners goes to the next page. If the wrong sentence is selected they are sent back one or more pages to read over again. At this point, only text is processed. The page image is presented with all text and graphic content for the learner to read.

The OpenExpert has the capabilities to display WebGL as embedded html and we hope to use WebRTC for real time monitoring of progress.

We used the first free open textbook of the electronic age as an example. In the 1980's the philosophy text entitled "God Science and Reason" hit the bbs's and was the first opencourseware of the electronic media age.

Thanks for quoting from my fathers textbook. As professor Wally said, 2600 years ago on the Ionian coast. "The Birth of Reason"
Today, Washington DC. "The abandonment of reason."

I always liked the message my vote for Orman would send to the political elite. 
Now that he has a good shot at winning, I like it even more!

An "Orman" Approach to government sounds good to me. 
If we could get politicians willing to practice lean mean government.
Sane logical and productive practices that make progress grow.
I would support Orman Candidates in 50 states.

We are going to make our vote count by saying no to the Colluding Duopoly in Washington.
We will vote Orman!
