Second International Workshop on Teaching and Learning of Information Retrieval (TLIR 2008) (TLIR)
Teaching and Learning of Information Retrieval
18 October 2008
A Web Information Retrieval course is quite appealing to Computer Science students and is quite challenging from the teacher’s perspective, due to the limited knowledge of IR and Web IR of the students. In this paper we present our experience teaching a mainly practical Web IR course in order to exploit the programming skills of the common Computer Science student. The student is required to develop its own search engine and his evaluation is based on the features of the search engine implemented.
