Google Helps Teachers Create Interactive Learning Quizzes [Video]
Oppia is an open source platform that offers an interactive learning experience.
Google has been redefining the purpose of technology and leveraging its applications to enhance the learning experience both in the classroom and outside of it. The company’s educational experiments have seen many helpful tools such as Google Play for Education and virtual coursework done in partnership with MOOC, but a recent development highlights an even more tech-savy route for academics. They call it Oppia.
Oppia is an open source project that offers learners and teachers an online platform where they can engage in more meaningful dialogue and receive better feedback on various educational activities, otherwise known as ‘explorations’. The system assumes the role of a mentor, and can respond to questions in greater detail. Google describes Oppia as a “smart feedback system” that can “teach a person to fish.” By giving everyone access to the collected data, the system ensures explained contents are adequate and coherent. These publishings can also be easily edited by others.
