The effectiveness of an e-learning system for distance education to a large extent depends on the relevancy and presentation of learning content to the learner. The ability to gather documents on a particular topic from the web and adapt the contents of the document to suit the learner is an important task from the content creation perspective of e-learning. For the developer of e-learning material the provision to automatically extract, organize, and present content material would improve its effectiveness. This paper proposes to extract information from documents using language processing techniques and organizing the content into appropriate presentation slides for learning purposes using domain ontology and learning oriented pedagogy ontology.

In this section, we briefly review the work on content generation and the techniques involved in document processing and graph based approaches. A work on document summarization and information extraction for generation of power point slides was proposed with focus on generation of slides but which however did not consider domain knowledge (Prasad et al., 2009). Slide generation with semantically annotated documents having a predefined GDA (Global Document Annotation) tag set was attempted by Maso and Koti (1999). In their work slides were generated from predefined annotation of documents with XML tag set for the machines to infer the semantic structure of the document. A work on separation of content from its presentation logic and its storage in an XML based content object format was proposed by Bhutoria and Mishra (2005).
