This paper considers a system for massive course generation. The output of this system is a course arranged in a hierarchical structure of chapters and pages. Each page consists of multimedia components such as text, sound, music, image, video, animation, and graphics. The system has a hypermedia capability that is built on top of open Internet standards such as HTML. This enables the generated hypermedia courses to be broadcast on the Web and be navigated using any web browser. Students can evaluate their study and get a quantitative measure score for their study. Furthermore, the system is equipped with an automatic system for final exams generation. Finally, six courses of the senior year in the biomedical engineering department, Faculty of Engineering, Cairo University, were implemented using this generation system.
