MaMpf (Mathematische Medienplattform) is an innovative open source E-Learning platform for the mathematical sciences. Central point is the interconnection between different content in the sense of a hypermedia system.
MaMpf uses the contextual classification of a course as visual leitmotiv, instead of organizational aspects.
MaMpf comes with its own hypermedia player and editor THymE (The hypermedia Experience). ThymeE uses the internal structure of mathematical content (consisting of theorems, remarks, definitions etc.) and allows exact navigation between content that is related, but temporally apart. References can be created not only to content within the same video, but within the whole MaMpf database.
ThymE is lean and makes use of WebVTT and HTML5 video capabilites of modern browsers. A sample hypervideo can be found here.
MaMpf is equipped with a tagging system and rich visualisations for content relations, making use of cytoscape.js.
MaMpf has a quiz system that allows you to create complex quizzes quite easily.
MaMpf makes use of the JS based symbolic math expression evaluator nerdamer to parse student's input in quizzes.
MaMpf is implemented in Ruby on Rails.
