Google want to help you teach others with their latest open source project


Today Google launched yet another product aimed at making our lives easier. Called Oppia, the open source project was launched with the goal of making it easy for anyone to create interactive activities online that others can learn from.

These activities are called explorations, and can be created and contributed to by multiple people from anywhere, as long as you have internet access. The explorations are created via a Web interface, so you won’t need any coding skills to start educating the internet.

Google’s own description of how the project works is that “Oppia does this by modeling a mentor who poses questions for the learner to answer. Based on the learner’s responses, the mentor decides what question to ask next, what feedback to give, whether to delve deeper, or whether to proceed to something new. You can think of this as a smart feedback system that tries to “teach a person to fish,” instead of simply revealing the correct answer or marking the submitted answer as wrong.”
