Knowledge Sea II is an extension of Knowledge Sea project that was designed as a mixed corpus C programming resource that tries to bridge the gap between closed corpus materials in the form of lecture notes and open-corpus materials in the form of the set of the links to online resources for C programming.
Knowledge Sea II is designed to help users navigate from lectures to relevant online tutorials in a map-based horizontal navigation format. Every cell of the KnowledgeSea map includes links to online material that are related to keyword presented on the cell. The adjacent cells present similar material. The most important feature of KnowledgeSea is facilitating the navigation through providing traffic and annotation based social navigation support.
