For example, our rules can inform the teachers “Students who find Chapter 3 useful also find Chapter 5 useful”. Knowledge like this will allow the teachers to organize the two chapters together on the web structure. It will also allow teachers to recommend students new chapters to read based on their current reading. Similarly, the same associations can be used to help organize the material better or form better student study groups.
