In this demo, we show data clouds that summarize the re- sults of keyword searches over structured data. Data clouds provide insight into the database contents, hints for query modification and refinement and can lead to serendipitous discoveries of diverse results. In this demo paper: • we summarize the main issues for generating data clouds • we give an overview of our framework for keyword search- ing with summaries (clouds) • we describe our system CourseCloud that allows search- ing for courses and their evaluation.
