  • Patent number: 10261953
    Abstract: An online review system determines scores for document authors and document reviewers. An author score is based on a number of comments added to a document by reviewers. One way to compute the author score is to use a ratio of a number of comments provided by reviewers of a document to a number of lines of document contents provided by the author. A reviewer score for a reviewer is based on an amount of comments subsequently made by other reviewers, and on the document content itself, such as a ratio of a number of comments provided in subsequent reviews of a document to a number of lines of original document contents. In some embodiments, the online review system monitors trends in scores of individuals or teams.

  • Publication number: 20190065515
    Abstract: An online platform generates a playlist of clips of a lecture accessed by a plurality of users of the online platform. The online platform receives a recording of the lecture, and receives a plurality of events captured during a time period corresponding to the lecture. Each captured event is associated with a time stamp corresponding to a time at which a user performed an activity while listening to the lecture. The online platform clusters the captured events based on the time stamps, and generates one or more clips of the recording of the lecture from the clustered events. The online platform generates a playlist including the clips of the lecture.

  • Publication number: 20190034388
    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.

  • Patent number: 10176480
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-readable storage medium provide for managing stranded assets of a customer service call center. The system includes an interface component that identifies an opportunity event of an established customer service session initiated by a user that is in a waiting queue for a customer service representative. The system includes an ingestion component that ingests one or more characteristics of the opportunity event that characterize at least one of: (i) the identity of the user; (ii) subject of the established customer service session; and (iii) situational context of the user. The system includes a correlation component that correlates the one or more ingested characteristics and an estimated duration of the waiting queue with at least one transaction-related content item. The system includes a publishing component that publishes a selected transaction-related content item via the established customer service session to the user while in the waiting queue.

  • Publication number: 20180336167
    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: 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.

  • Publication number: 20180322600
    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: 20180285496
    Abstract: A platform models and correlates physical activities based on users' interactions with a simple grip-metaphor design, enabling multi-dimensions actionable information to improve the health, performance and well-being of connected grip users within like-minded communities. For example, the platform captures multi-dimensional datasets generated from activities of each of a plurality of users on the online human internet of thing platform, where the activities include physical interactions with connected grips systems connected to the online human internet of thing platform. The platform then filters the captured multi-dimensional datasets into a plurality of categories and scores the filtered multi-dimensional data by the human internet of thing platform. Finally, the platform generates a multi-dimensional information modeling for each user based on the scored multi-dimensional data.

  • Publication number: 20180181916
    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: 20180137557
    Abstract: An online shopping system receives a digital shopping cart representing a set of identifiers of one or more items offered for sale by the shopping system and selected for purchase by a first user. A uniform resource locator (URL) is generated that uniquely references the digital shopping cart. The online shopping system receives a request from a second user to access the URL. Responsive to receiving the request, a digital shopping cart is configured for the second user including the set of identifiers of the one or more items.

  • Patent number: 9870358
    Abstract: An augmented reading system distributes electronic content related to paper documents. A user reading a paper document captures an image of a page of the paper document via a computing device communicatively coupled to the augmented reading system. The augmented reading system receives the image and correlates the image to electronic documents to identify the paper document. The augmented reading system may perform an image-based comparison or a character-based comparison to correlate the image with electronic documents. Additional electronic content related to the identified document is retrieved and delivered to the computing device of the user. Accordingly, the augmented reading system provides a bridge between paper documents and digital content and services.
