We are here to present an application built on top of SMW to help crowd-source knowledge acquisition. This application is part of a bigger effort in Project Halo, and we expect it can lower the cost to obtain easy to encode high quality statements from more complex textbook sentences. The application employs AJAX to improve usability and productivity of users, it also takes advantage of structure of the textbook and semantic relationship to help achieve the goals. A prototype will be presented and demoed.
