I am a co-developer of the Writing for Transfer online course (nicknamed WOOC). This Little Open Online Course, similar to a MOOC, is designed to provide ongoing writing education and support to students once they have completed First Year Composition courses. Several hundred resources (to be expanded to several thousand) are delivered to the user through a combination of semantic search capabilities and a recommender system built off of Apache Mahout. A dynamic lexicon serves as an organizing metadata for the resources.
