<span>Since data is available increasingly on the Internet, efforts are needed to develop and improve recommender systems to produce a list of possible favorite items. In this paper, we expand our work to enhance the accuracy of Arabic collaborative filtering by applying sentiment analysis to user reviews, we also addressed major problems of the current work by applying effective techniques to handle the scalability and sparsity problems. The proposed approach consists of two phases: the sentiment analysis and the recommendation phase. The sentiment analysis phase estimates sentiment scores using a special lexicon for the Arabic dataset. The item-based and singular value decomposition-based collaborative filtering are used in the second phase. Overall, our proposed approach improves the experiments’ results by reducing average of mean absolute and root mean squared errors using a large Arabic dataset consisting of 63,000 book reviews.</span>

Abstract The implementation of the School Literacy Movement (GLS) at SMP Negeri 3 Batang challenges is interpreted as reading activities. This shows the existence of literacy misconceptions. The main obstacle encountered was the absence of a follow-up program from the GLS. Team's study formulated a solution, namely a post-reading follow-up mentoring program in the form of Booktube (Book Reviews on Youtube). The formulation of the problem in this service activity is 1) what efforts are being made to reduce misconceptions at SMP Negeri 3 Batang?, and 2) how is the implementation of Booktube production assistance at SMP Negeri 3 Batang? This activity was held on August 4, September 2, and September 21, 2021 with 76 students. The results of the activity, namely 1) Efforts made to reduce literacy misconceptions are knowing the post-reading mentoring program in the form of Booktube, 2) Implementation of Booktube production assistance through training in writing interesting book reviews, production of Booktube content, and ends with the practice of producing and uploading book review content on Youtube. The results of this service activity are optimal in an effort to reduce misconceptions with the follow-up of the GLS in the form of a production of 57 Booktubes.   Abstrak Implementasi Gerakan Literasi Sekolah (GLS) di SMP Negeri 3 Batang sekadar dimaknai sebagai kegiatan membaca selama 15 menit sebelum pembelajaran.
