Abstract

This project made several key improvements to the distance education application OfCourse. Research was conducted into the field of distance learning and semantic searching. The software structure was reorganized from a monolithic entity to a plugin architecture. Several important security vulnerabilities were recognized and fixed. Many of the tools used in OfCourse were redesigned or replaced entirely. Finally, a discoverability search tool was added to provide a means for users to perform system-wide searches of the information contained within OfCourse.
