  • Publication number: 20210272223
    Abstract: An online education platform manages and integrates a number of education services for users of the platform, including job recall services. These job recall services include management and distribution of job recall materials that test whether job applicants have acquired desired knowledge or skills for a particular job opening or class of jobs. The job recall materials are uploaded to the education platform and mapped to one or more learning units. Each learning unit is associated with an educational course and includes a distinct concept in the associated course. Responsive to a user of the education platform completing the learning unit to which a job recall material is mapped, the job recall material is recommended to the user.

  • Publication number: 20210150120
    Abstract: A testing materials production system generates a testing document associated with an electronic foundation document. The testing materials production system automatically generates the testing document by populating regions of a template with testing elements extracted from the electronic document. User customizations of the testing document are received, and the testing document is published to an extended catalog database associated with the electronic document. Regions of the testing document may be delivered in association with the electronic document to designated recipients via browser applications executing on computing devices of the recipients.

  • Publication number: 20210117609
    Abstract: A service control system controls access to secured online testing services, such as accredited or standardized tests, examinations in educational courses, tutoring services, and continuing professional development courses or seminars. The secured services may be published by an educational publishing platform and made available to users through online configured browser applications executing on the users' devices. Based on access conditions associated with a secured testing service and the capturing and processing of one or more images, the service control system determines how users are authorized to access the services. When users have been authorized to access a service or a subset of the service, the service may be distributed through the browser applications executing on the users' devices.

  • Publication number: 20200349523
    Abstract: Employers or recruiters populate an online database with job postings. The concepts that job applicants need to have learned to be successful applicants for a job are stated or inferred from the job posting and optionally resumes of others who have held that job. A student's own learning activities are logged by an online education platform. From a comparison between the student's completed learning units and a job posting's required learning units, a personalized learning unit gap can be identified for a student. The online education platform can then recommend how the student can fill the gap by undertaking the study of learning units on the education platform.

  • Publication number: 20180336168
    Abstract: A publishing platform manages distribution of a multilayered document to a plurality of user devices communicatively coupled to the platform. Each device executes an eReader browser application, which renders the document into a format suitable for a user to read and interact with the content. Each layer of the document has unique characteristics relating to its file size, spatial dimensions, update frequency, or interactivity, and the unique attributes of each device affect the system resources available to the eReading application executing on the device. Based on the characteristics of each layer and the attributes of the devices, the publishing platform recommends a set of layers of the document most suited for each device. The platform may automatically distribute layers to each connected device, or it may deliver the recommendation to the user and distribute layers responsive to a user input.
