EXTENDED ABSTRACT Researchers have been studying and developing teaching materials for information retrieval (IR), such as [3] . Toolkits also have been built that provide hands-on experience to students. For example, is an effort to close the gap between the students' understanding of IR concepts and real-life indexing and search systems. Such tools might be good for helping students in non-technical areas such as in the Library and Information Science field to develop their conceptual model

Although there is open source software (such as those in http://www.searchtools.com/tools/tools-opensource.html) that can be used to teach basic and advanced IR topics, they require a student to have high-level technical knowledge and to spend a long time to gain a practical understanding of these topics.
