K-12 education standards in the U.S. require all students to read complex texts across many subject areas. The Language MuseTM Activity Palette is a web-based language-instruction application that uses NLP algorithms and lexical resources to automatically generate language activities and support English language learners’ content comprehension and language skills development. The system’s online platform for activity generation, scoring, and feedback is scalable for MOOCs, as well as for other online learning settings.
